Friendship Beats Bullying Every Time

Bullying is a terrible thing that some kids have to deal with when they're in school. But this 5th grade boy with a learning disability has a secret weapon in combating bullies: friends. When a group of 5th graders saw a classmate of theirs getting picked on, they decided to take him into their group so he couldn't be singled out. So heart-warming!

  • And there is the answer to all the world's problems - exemplified in the compassion of five young boys. Bravo! - 11/26/2017 9:59:49 AM
  • It's wonderful to see these boys befriend the dark haired boy, rather than bully him. At first impression, if I saw these boys walking down the sidewalk, I'd assume they could be bullies. They appear to be tough, strong kids, but when I saw them being compassionate, instead, to the boy with special needs, I cried. I hope nobody misunderstands what I'm trying to say. I'm admitting I judged by appearances, then when I played the video, I was overjoyed when I saw that these boys were not bullying kids. I thought the video was going to have kids that were bullies explaining why they bullied. OMG. Amazing wake up fo rme! - 9/22/2017 3:03:47 PM

  • What a great group of young people! - 5/21/2017 2:29:27 PM
  • I wish there were more kids like this when I was growing up and more kids like this today. I really believe it starts with parenting, so kudus to the parents and best wishes for the kids on continued success in their lives. - 5/16/2017 10:49:27 AM

  • Great group of kids! - 2/15/2017 4:19:38 PM
  • This video breaks my heart. I know there are kids out there like this but most of what we see and hear is so negative. I know some people don't like this truly takes a village to raise a child. As the mother said, "they are changing him!" A person can be changed through the kindness of others. - 1/16/2017 8:50:38 PM

    These kids are great. What a beautiful, heartwarming story. I am a teacher of students with disabilities and see first hand how difficult it is for some of the students to make friends or be accepted by others. These kids showed the power of kindness. - 8/24/2016 10:15:54 PM
