At Kansas Children’s Service League we believe that bullying is a form of child
abuse – peer to peer. Each day the impact of bullying is felt in school and
community settings across the nation. It negatively affects the lives of both
the bullier and the target. No longer simply considered “kids being kids,”
bullying and its prevention has become a critical issue for schools,
communities, and parents alike. In conjunction with SuEllen Fried, a nationally
recognized bullying prevention expert and founder of
BullySafeUSA, KCSL offers an innovative range of
learning opportunities for students, educators, parents, and community members.
This research-based program has been evaluated by Rutgers University and the
University of Kansas. It has proven to be effective in reducing the instances of
certain types of bullying behaviors, increasing students’ factual knowledge of
bullying and their sense of witness responsibility. To learn how you can begin a
bullying prevention program in your school or community or for rates and
