The Prescott Valley School's Youth Chamber sponsored a whole week of anti-bullying information early in November. The highlight was the "Anti-Bullying Project," where PVS students attended assemblies where skits were presented and then discussed. It was a rousing success, according to student attendees and teachers.

The skits were written and acted out by the Youth Chamber students. This gave the plays a sense of reality because all the Youth Chamber students are in grades 9-12, an age group that experiences a lot of bullying. The topics that they chose included: why students are bullied, physical bullying, cyber bullying, verbal bullying, and social bullying. A majority of the students attending were in grades K-8, where bullying often starts. After each skit, the attendees were asked questions to see if they understood the messages being sent.

Another highlight of the week was a program by Wendy Watson of Prescott College. Watson is an expert in early childhood development, including bullying. The Youth Chamber learned a lot from her and incorporated this into their presentations.

Youth Chamber advisor Bill Suedmeyer shared the event's slogan, borrowed from Dr. Seuss: "Be yourself, because the people that mind don't matter and the people that matter don't mind."

The Youth Chamber plans on following up on this eventful week by partnering with its supportive administration, Monika and Mike Fuller. Any area school or service group may contact the PVS Youth Chamber to have its Speakers' Bureau visit and present the same information that was presented at the Anti-Bullying Project. Call Suedmeyer at 928-772-8744.

It's tragic that these incidents are happening, despite of the full effort of the government in protecting their people it seems that these efforts are not enough in keeping them from harm. Children are the most vulnerable in terms of incapability on protecting themselves from any danger, keeping them safe is the effective thing to do. Our government should always take some action on ensuring its citizens safety, as well as parents they must take part of this situation, the problem is parents tend to forget this vital thing, due to unable to manage their time they're not always there to protect their children.
