October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and throughout the month, Hard Rock Daddy will be working in conjunction with a number of hard rock artists to encourage bullying prevention.
Now that students across the country have all returned to school, the awareness surrounding bullying will once again be heightened.
“As a parent, this issue is always top of mind throughout the school year, due in large part to the rash of school shootings that have taken place in recent years,” stated Hard Rock Daddy Publisher, Adam Waldman. “Although I personally only dealt with a few minor bullying incidents throughout my school years, I have seen the devastation that is caused by both physical and mental bullying, especially when it comes to social media,” continued Waldman.
Hard Rock Daddy’s plans for National Bullying Prevention Month include: features of hard rock artists sharing personal bullying stories from their childhood, a spotlight on hard rock songs that were written about bullying (and the backstories behind the lyrics), public service announcements by prominent hard rock artists and more.
“Too often, kids that are bullied feel isolated and fear the repercussions of talking to an authority figure,” said Waldman. “Hard Rock Daddy’s goal with this month-long campaign is to let kids know that they are not alone, that there is help available, and that there are well-known rock stars who dealt with the same issues when they were growing up.”
A number of hard rock artists have already committed to be a part of this bullying prevention campaign. The entire list of artists will be released at the end of September.
