Bullying isn’t just beating a kid up for his or her lunch money. It can be threats, rumors or verbal abuse. At least half the suicides of young people are bully related. Keep childhood fun, help stop bullying. The Goddard School and Mix 106.5 are teaming up to help stop bullying. Each month tune into Priestly’s show to hear from those people in our community who are making a difference among our youth every day.
