An anti-bullying campaign is encouraging elementary school students to talk about their problems before picking on someone.

The Drop the B.E.A.T (Bullying Ends After Talking) program shared ways for students to open dialogues through skits and songs. Dance and spoken word, and musical performances were also a part of Thursday’s program

Members of the anti-bullying group say they hope children will learn how to talk about their problems as children to make them better adults.

The campaign for anti-bullying launched at Corporal Michael Middlebrook Elementary in Lafayette.
