According to Pacer.org, more than 160,000 U.S. students stay home from school each day from fear of being bullied. That is a lot!
This week, the movie Standing Up was released on DVD and is a heart-warming movie with an important anti-bullying message that’s for the whole family.
Based on one of the most beloved Young Adult novels of all time and directed by the acclaimed D.J. Caruso, Standing Up follows two kids who get bullied by a vicious summer camp prank. Left together on an island, their adventure begins once they decide not to be victims and instead they Stand Up!
