Solange Knowles Speaks Out On Bullying

soalnge knowles puts blame on parents for bullying

Beyonce's kid sister, Solange Knowles is putting her Twitter to good use and coming out to speak about teenage bullying.

In a series of tweets this afternoon, Solange discussed her admiration for the It Gets Better campaign, but brings up a valid point about parents involvement. On her site, she discusses the angle of parents getting involved to teach their children better values and respect for people. She explains:

"I think the #itgetsbetter campaigns are amazing, but I honestly feel like there needs to be a national push towards the parents!!

Parents need to talk to children & tell them how serious it is when they tease, joke , banter, form groups against, & explain consequences!

I believe my son is a very loving, considerate, & nice boy, but U cant put ANYTHING past your children when U send them into the big world!"

We agree! A hateful attitude can start at home, but its much harder to change the views of adults than it is for kids. That's why it is important to have these programs to reach out to kids on BOTH sides.

Still, as much as Solange is a supporter of the initiatives to help struggling bullied teens, she recalls being a child when "horrible"things would happen to her and that "someone telling you its gonna be o.k….only feels like a temporary relief."

Perhaps it is - until there enough voices saying the same, positive message! Then, how can it be ignored?!

Just remember, it always gets better, one way or another.

    It should be made illegal, simple as that. It's like harrasment in adult world.

    Perez you should do research on mental illness and Depression as well. These kids need more than a PSA, and bullying and suicides have been going on for years and years and years now, glad you're finally joining in on the discussion, but this isn't new. The young guy from Rutgers brought national attention to the cause, but thousands of kids every year have been struggling and dying because of intense pressure of depression. Read the statistics and educate yourself

    Whatever, she's a damn bully so I don't know why the hell she thinks she can speak out about it!! How about you learn to be a nice person and not a huge bitch, then maybe you can give some advice. Til then shut the fuck up!!

    Give me a break, this whole bullying campaign no doubt is being funded by our Government.

    Solange is absolutely right. Kids need to be held accountable and it starts in the home. The average parent is ready to curse a teacher out and threaten violence when told that their kid is misbehaving in school because they think their kids are angels that can do no wrong.I am 100% in favor of the It Gets Better campaign, but there needs to be a campaign that is targeted specifically at the people doing the bullying and the people raising these terrors because they are the ones causing the havoc.

    And here I thought Katy Perry's breasts were the biggest problem. Couldn't have been written by her anyway; she thinks children is spelt "chirrens".

    I like seeing a woman of color with natural hair. Never see that in Hollywood anymore.Re: AllaFrost.com – You cannot legislate kindness. The government is not suppose to do everything! Selling freedom for security is a mistake.

    This girl has a cool, edgy style. Unique - you gotta admire that. And good point that anti-bullying starts at home with parenting!

    Whoever coined the phrase, "Boy's will be Boy's", needs a swift kick in the ASS… Good excuse not to do anything & yes girls bully too.

    OOPS sorry Solange looks like your sister got all the looks.

    Re: Lullaby – It takes a lot of time to take care of a natural/fro hair.

    Re: Phibes – ahahah fail because she didn't spell it like that?



  18. 18

    Hmm, well I tend to agree with what she is saying, but most of the time when I have heard anything out of this woman's mouth she has been pretty bitch herself so I don't really know how to take it.

    This bullying stuff is getting so annoying with everyone on earth cashing in on 15 more minutes of relevancy by tweeting, PSA, or blogging about it it makes me want to punch someone's lights out.



  21. 21

    Buckwheat's in da house!

    She's right, just because some rich insulated people are telling you that it will get better, it did for them, doesn't really help the fact you are being slammed against the lockers or being barked at in the halls (because these witty urbane kids consider you to be a "dog" oh they are so clever!) or that you are being called "fat" because you are a whole size 10 in a 2-4 world.



  27. 27

    WTF is up with her hair? What a sight lol



  28. 28

    these kids who bully other kids need their - - - - - beat! I grew up in a home with a sister 6 yrs older. mom would let her say and do anything she wanted to me and mom would laugh. I was tiny petite and blonde. my sister was fat and had black hair.even when I was as young as 4 I can remember her calling me stupid, ugly fat, a whore, said Id never have a date, boyfriend, or husband. and when her friends were around she would be worse. a good parent doesnt allow a child to bully!!!
