MASK Launches Premiere Magazine Issue on Bullying as President Obama Conducts Anti-Bullying Conference in Washington, D.C.

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - March 7, 2011) - MASK (Mothers Awareness on School-age Kids) launches its informative, quarterly publication, MASK The Magazine, on March 10, 2011, the same day President Obama plans to conduct an anti-bullying conference in Washington, D.C. 

The Bullying Issue: The Unseen Bruises will educate parents and children about what bullying is, how to recognize it and how to deal with it -- including ten telltale signs your child is dealing with a bully -- or, your child is being one. The reader will also learn what bullying looks like in elementary school, middle school, high school and beyond, as well as age-appropriate conversation starters which can help open the lines of communication between parents and their child(ren). 

The "SAT Section" of the magazine is designed to give students a voice, and parents are encouraged to use this section as a tool for sharing real-life experiences that, in some instances, empowered the victim to take a stand. In the first issue, this section was written by Arizona high school students who sound off on one of the most prevalent forms of manipulation and intimidation facing teens: Cyberbullying.
In the "Final Exam" section, read the courageous story of one victim's experience dealing with the effects of global cyberbullying. 

The Bullying issue is packed with advice and is available now at www.maskmatters.org. Families can join MASK and receive the Bullying issue, plus the next three issues (Drug, Health and Technology) for $24.00 by visiting our website at www.maskmatters.org.

Founder and Publisher Kimberly Cabral is available for on-camera interviews.
