Sticks and Stones

The message here is to stop bullying and teasing and think about each other’s feelings. The intent is to remove any desire to tease others and to ease the minds of victims of bullying. This comes from the saying “Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”

The saying can help you feel strong, but you have to have strength already for that to work. The reason is, words can hurt. We are all human and have emotions.

No one should ever feel or be made to feel like they are lesser than another. Be who you are, that’s what makes you YOU!

This design came about by request and by watching all the problems with bullying in school in the news.

That said, don’t forget that bullying and teasing happens with adults as well, even in the workplace.


If you or someone you know is having trouble with bullies, has low self confidence or friendship problems, or a victim of teasing at work or school, this design is for you. You may not be able to change the past, but you can move forward in your life.

Bullies themselves should have this design to help them change their ways. As with anything, the ultimate cure is to rid yourself of the desire to do things that hurt others.
