HOW TO UNMAKE A BULLY cover image
It was realistic and felt like something they could actually do themselves. The kids liked when Jack was confronted and they found out that he had changed and was no longer a bully. Some like the part where a few kids stuck up for another boy being made fun of. "Sometimes you can solve a problem without needing a teacher's help. Even if you do need help, it's okay and you are not a tattletale." "Bullies have feelings to; by preventing them from being a bully you are helping them to be better people and have more friends." "I like when the three friends got all the kids together to try and "unmake" the bully." "I like the sound, because they picked songs that go along with the story." The kids enjoyed the sounds, music and video game scenes. "My twelve-year-old daughter asked me if I could ask her Principal to show this at school."
In this short film, the main characters make a decision to try and stop a bully. They use open conversation and honestly try to find a way to help the bullies at their school to realize that they are not only hurting others, but also not making themselves feel better either. They use great problem-solving skills and their social behavior is a role-model for other children. Demonstrates that each person has a responsibility to do the right thing. When they witness poor behavior they have a choice; to go along with it or stand up against it. Encourages viewers to stand up and do the right thing. Empowers us to find solutions to problems and how people can work together to make a difference. There are some issues in production quality, including sound problems. This would make a great addition to any school's curriculum on bullying, or on being a good member of the community. The best part is that it models positive behaviors and actions children can take to solve a problem. It also lets kids know that it's okay to ask for help.
A student shows up injured in the nurse's office, so three friends decide it's time to do something about their school bully. Trading stories of other successful anti-bullying, students work together with teachers and peers to find solutions.
