Save The Next Kid Project

have started the #savethenextkid project. It's a campaign against bullying. However, don't be fooled by the name, I also help adults who are being bullied.
Below is a Bullying Survey


Bullying comes in many forms. One form of bullying you may have heard of is Cyberbullying. With so many people on the Internet Cyberbullying has become a new platform for bullies.



It only takes one person to make a difference & to stand up & speak out. I am one of those people. I am launching a campaign to stop bullying & prevent suicide, #savethenextkid Together we can put a stop to bullying.



What my goal here is to help as many people as I can. I want others to speak out. Stand up & make your voice be heard. One way to combat bullying is to speak out against bullying & tell your story or the story of others. We need people to be aware that bullying is a real PROBLEM! Many people turn a blind eye or don't take suicide threats seriously.



I think school staff need to be trained in bullying and how to prevent it. A lot of the time School Staff Members don't take the bullying seriously or they brush it off. These days kids handle bullying different than we did when we were in school. We got bullied and did our best to survive those school years & look I survived but not without multiple suicide attempts and cutting myself. Kids these days are lead to believe that suicide is their only option, but it's not. 



My goal as I said above is to help as many people as I can, kids and adults. I am going to make a video about bullying with my story and I encourage you to make a video with your story or the story of someone you may know. When posting on Social Media use the hashtag #savethenextkid Let's raise awareness about bullying & suicide. We can prevent it & we can help others.



There are so many brave kids these days that are speaking up about being bullied and shAring their story. They are amazing kids who are standing up & letting their voice be heard. 


Being a Bystander shows that you agree with a bully. Don't be a bystander! When you see someone being bullied, take a stand & stop the person from being bullied. Speak out & help that person. Being a bystander means you are just as bad as the bully.

Cyberbullying has become one of the most popular forms of bullying. And because of being Cyberbullies so many kids these days are taking their own life because of the torture they are being put through. One example is Amanda Todd. Look her video up on Yourube. She tells her story in a video before she commits suicide. She was Cyberbullied and it got to be too much for her to handle and she committed suicide because she felt that was the only way to finally end the bullying.

Kids are not the only ones who are bullied. I used to be bullied at work, I now however have changed jobs. I at the time didn't realize I was being bullied until I started doing research about bullying. Here are 7 Facts of How To Deal With A Bully at Work


Please contact me if you would like to share your story or if you would like to be involved in #savethenextkid I would love to hear your story. If you are being bullied
Please contact me and I can help you get through this. You don't have to go through it alone. Suicide is NOT your only option to stop bullying.

Feeling Content

Working on a blog post about my project #savethenextkid
Hoping I can help kids & adults who are being bullied. Yes Adults get bullied too. When someone bullied you, remember it's not your fault or anything you did. It's something wrong with the person that bullied you. They could either have low self esteem or feel insecure about themselves and bullying you makes them feel better. Together we can stop bullying and prevent suicide. If you are being bullied whether you are a kid or an adult, please reach out to me & let me help you. 

#savethenextkid

It only takes one person to make difference. YOU can be that someone. I want to make a difference in order's lives. If I can help one kid from committing suicide because of being bullied then I'll know I've made a difference.


I'm starting a new project, to help those being bullied. And to help the GLBT youth because I came out at 14 & was bullied for being gay. I want to help prevent suicide. Let's stand up and speak out. If you have ever been bullied than join me in the fight to help those who are being bullied or have been bullied.


Create a video or make a post on FB, Twitter or INSTAGRAM with your story or what you have to say about being bullied add the hashtag #savethenextkid


Supports kids who are being bullied:
•Listen & focus on the child
•Learn what's been going on & show you want to help
•Assure the child that bullying is NOT their fault
•Give advice about what to do. This may involve role-playing & thinking through how the child might react if the bullying occurs again.



Address Bullying Behavior:
•Young people who bully must learn their behavior is wrong & harms others
•Ahow kids that bullying is taken seriously.


When someone Cyberbullies you, don't respond & don't forward messages. Keep evidence, record the dates, times & descriptions of instances when Cyberbullying has occurred. Sven& print screenshots, emails, & text messages.

STOP BULLYING

If you are being bullied there are people you can reach out to. I am one of those people. As a kid and even still as an adult I have been bullied. It has made me a stronger person, the fact that I survived through it all. I was called names, called dyke, thrown against lockers, people used to throw stuff at me. But what hurt the most was their words. Because as a kid you get to the point where you start believing what they say. I came out at 14 & I was the only gay kid that I knew of. There could have been others but they never told anyone. Why? Maybe because they saw what I went through & they didn't want to have to endure the torment I went through. Back then it wasn't as acceptable as it is now. What's worse is when your parents bully you. Especially if you are a gay kid. Mind you my mom is a Jehovah Witness & I heard it all. Jehovah created one man one woman, it says homosexuality is a sin in the bible. Yeah I heard it all. And I had to hear that from my mother for many years. She has over the last 6 years stopped with bible quoting & making me feel bad. That doesn't mean necessarily she accepts my lifestyle but she loves me & knows I'm not going to change. However with changing my name to Aiden & wanting to be a boy she has recently while being around me said, "Girl, Girl, you're a girl". If you only knew how I felt inside you would understand that her saying this to me was hurtful. It's hard to explain that whole part though so moving  on. Being bullied by your parents takes a toll on you emotionally and mentally. And me with ADHD & having behavioral problems as a kid it wasn't easy growing up. I was a lot for my parents to handle. My dad & I are a lot alike which was a problem some of the time. We went head to head and fought and argued a lot. I got called retarded and stupid by my father a lot when I was growing up. He may not see it but it was mental & emotional abuse. Granted with everything  I went through I love my dad very much no matter what. 

Being bullied is a lot to deal with especially as a kid but it can be just as hard as an adult. You have to know that there are people out there that want to help you. I am one of those people. I am here to help you. She many kids these days commit suicide because they think that's the only way to end the bullying. And I am here to tell you that
ITS NOT!!! 

My friend started #ProjectKindness to help those who are being bullied. If you are being bullied reach out to us & we can help you. 

Remember, it only takes ONE person to make a difference. BE that person. Be the change you want to see in the world. 

You can get in touch with me on Facebook Aiden Kirchner or you can email me at aidendbean@yahoo.com If you are being bullied and need someone to talk to message me & I'll give you my number or we can FaceTime. I AM HERE TO HELP YOU!!

Let's #stopbullying together we can make a difference. #dontbeabully Treat people how you would want to be treated. Be kind to one another. #ProjectKindness

Started My 1st Day Of Work

So I started my 1st day of work at 7 Eleven yesterday. First day and I was already running cash register. I was Assistant Manager at Shell so I have experience. Though the 7 Eleven system is different I was shown what each button was and after an hour I was running register. I just need to learn the way 7 Eleven does things. So far I can tell that I am going to like it much better than the Shell Station. And Kyle is great. He seems to be a great Manager/Store Owner.
