Cool Kind Kid® combines character education and social skills development to equip kids to resist the deception that bullying is cool. The motivation for bullying, watching bullying, or tolerating bullying is considerably weakened when kids learn how to redefine “cool.”
Stand for the Silent was started in 2010 by a group of students from the Oklahoma State University- Oklahoma City Upward Bound Chapter after they heard the story of Kirk and Laura Smalley’s son, Ty Field-Smalley. At eleven years-old, Ty took his own life after being suspended from school for retaliating against a bully that had been bullying him for over two years.
Stand for the Silent exists as a platform to allow Kirk and Laura to share their story and offer education and tools that will prevent their tragedy from happening to another child and family. Kirk and Laura’s mission is to continue to change kids’ lives and bring awareness to bullying and the real devastation it causes. Since May 2010, Kirk and Laura Smalley have traveled to over a thousand schools and spoken with more than 1,000,000 kids. In March 2011, Kirk and Laura met privately with President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama in The White House prior to attending the first ever White House conference on bullying. Their story is featured in Director Lee Hirsch’s feature film, Bully. Kirk and Laura have been invited to a number of conferences on bullying and met with Lady Gaga at the launch of the Born This Way Foundation.
