The new resource is a one-stop shop for students, parents and teachers to learn more about ways to teach respect, like showing kids the proper way to treat one another and identify what exactly bullying is.

Students at the International High School have set up their own program to help with this problem, and teachers are hoping this new resource will help strengthen the skills they already know.
