My Daughter Kelsey Shoup and I got a chance to work a short film with 2 of our favorite ladies in horror Brenda Fies (Director), and Elisabeth Fies (Camera Woman, Producer).  The film we worked on is titled "Better than Bullies".  My Daughter plays Martha, a nerdy girl getting bullied and picked on by some fellow class mates. I did voice over work for this film, I play Martha's Mom.

This film really did touch our hearts!  Everyone has been bullied at some point in their life. I was bullied as a kid and my Daughter has had to deal with it already too!  It's something that sadly, won't be going out of style anytime soon. It's sad to know there are so many kids/adults out there that are directly effected by bulling!  Some people can get pass it on their own, while others might feel stuck in a rut...that there is no hope but to give up!  This film is a good way to make kids think about it from a different view.  Not to give up...but to find something in common with the bullies.

The best thing to do is talk to our kids, let them know we are there to help! Communication is always key to every good relationship.  Share this with your kids, or just talk to them about never know, they might be dealing with it now or know someone who is.  It just might help them turn the situation around!!  That is my hope anyways!  If we can touch one person's it be the victim or the bully, make them think about what is going on and how they can change it or stop it....that will make it all worth it to me!
