STOMP Out Bullying with Dearfoams
This is a sponsored post with Dearfoams. All opinions are mine.
Growing up, I was teased…a lot. I was teased for my red hair, for my fair skin, for my freckles, for my crooked teeth, for my skinny figure and more. When we think of bullying, often times we think of punching, pushing or other physical actions. However, bullying is more than the physical – it’s also the emotional. Now that I have children of mine, I want to do everything I can to both protect and empower them. I want them to feel smart, important, beautiful (both inside and out). I want them to be comfortable being who they are.
We all know that being a tween/teen girl can be tough (from acne and first-date agony to more serious issues, such as bullying) and Dearfoams wants to help our tweens and teens feel comfortable in their own skin. Dearfoams has partnered with STOMP Out Bullying™, the leading national anti-bullying and cyberbullying organization for kids and teens in the United States. To support its anti-bullying mission, Dearfoams is donating $100,000 to STOMP Out Bullying™ and asking tweens/teens and parents to participate by generating photos and stories on the #BeComfortableBeYou hashtag that encourage teen/tweens to feel comfortable being who they are.
When talking to our daughters about bullying, I asked them what advice they had for their peers. They both agreed that they would encourage their peers to be proud to be themselves and to not be afraid of what others might think if you’re different. I’m so proud of them and the young women they’ve become. I hope that we can all help STOMP Out Bullying together!
Be sure to check out Dearfoam’s new collection of Young & Fun slippers for teens/tweens. Our daughters and I received slippers from the line and love them! Not only are they comfortable, but they are super cute as well! By purchasing Dearfoams slippers and using the #BeComfortableBeYou hashtag, you can show your support too! Help spread the word that it’s better to be kind. To learn more about the partnership, follow @Dearfoams and @STOMPOutBullyng.
