Study: Curriculum Proven To Decrease Bullying

In an effort to turn the tide on America’s bullying epidemic, Cincinnati Children’s and Procter & Gamble’s Mean Stinks anti-bullying initiative have developed the “Girls Guide to End Bullying,” an anti-bullying curriculum.

The “Girls Guide to End Bullying” is a web-based interactive curriculum for individual students, teachers or parents, that provides specific tips and advice to girls that they can easily apply to their lives.

The curriculum has statistically significant proven effectiveness to decrease the experiences of being bullied by 5 percent, with an 11 percent decrease for those girls who were experiencing high levels of bullying before curriculum exposure.

The curriculum is now available for free access online to individual girls, teachers and parents at www.girlsguidetoendbullying.org. To help ensure the curriculum has the biggest impact to decrease instances of girl-to-girl bullying, Secret Mean Stinks will support its national dissemination in an effort to be implemented for the 2013/2014 school year.
