Friendship Beats Bullying Every Time

Bullying is a terrible thing that some kids have to deal with when they're in school. But this 5th grade boy with a learning disability has a secret weapon in combating bullies: friends. When a group of 5th graders saw a classmate of theirs getting picked on, they decided to take him into their group so he couldn't be singled out. So heart-warming!

I've seen this video before, but it's well worth re-watching. It brings tears to my eyes every time. What a great bunch of kids. I'd love to know where they are now! Report

It's wonderful that the boys got a chance to speak their minds. Some grownups can take lessons from them. I'm sure that their parents are very proud of them, I know I am. Report

These children have such a great aspect of what true friendship is and they also truly understand what it means to treat others with love and respect. Thank you children for showing all of us exactly what we all should do to one another. Report

I am an RN specializing in mental health and intellectual/deve
lopmental disabilities; now know as "the other" dual diagnosis. The majority of the adults I have worked with who have IDD have histories of being bullied and looked down upon throughout their lives. Even now, they see medical providers that speak down to them like children, others who feel sorry for them, and folks that will pray for them to become "normal". This video shows kids that are thinking of inclusion and looking at a young man's abilities, interests and personality; not just his disability. This is so important and can make individual's lives so much more wonderful and filled with self-confidence! Report
