Trailer: This is Abuse Campaign

As part of Anti-Bullying Week I am highlighting the Home Office's campaign against Teenage Relationship Abuse; a very important issue that I feel most teens don't recognise as abuse.

To find out more about the campaign visit the website HERE


  1. These trailers are great Emma, let's hope they make people think.

    One of my friends posted the following on their facebook status & it made me think of your anti-bullying week:
    "BULLYING - A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stamp on it and really mess it up but do not rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty is was. She then told them to tell it they’re ...sorry. Now even tho...ugh they they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bully’s another child, they may say they’re sorry but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Pass it on or better yet, if you're a parent or a teacher, do it with your child/children."

    Such a fantastic idea & one that would hopefully help get the anti-bullying message across!

  2. I struggle to watch these adverts. They really upset me. I hope they get the message across though. I love Sarah's idea above.
