    On Bullying,
    Leethan Bartholomew of the National FGM Center has accepted this song.
    Empowering Song for Children’ against Self Harming and Bullying.

    Me My Body And I’
    ( And yes Life can be a Bully as well ).
    Using the ‘lyrics’ in Songs to influence and help children should be seriously looked at.
    If you’ve been Bullied, you now need ‘a Voice’ picking you up, giving you back your confidence and self worth’ and getting you back thinking positivity.
    ‘Empowering song, with Empowering words, to Empower the child, to ‘Ignore’ the Bully)
    The best and easiest way to connect with children is by using a song.
    This song have been sent out to all Schools in the Croydon Borough by the Croydon Education Dept, and are backed by the NSPCC, Mental Health Charities, The National FGM Centre, The Government Education Minister, The Croydon Education Dept, Edu Kit, local MP Sarah Jones and the London and Croydon Mayors. Please pass this song on to the Children, because we have found out that there is ‘No’ Morning Assembly singing anymore, ‘Very, Very Bad’.
