Jimmerosity Positive Peer Pressure Program (P4)
The Fredette Family Foundation is trying to stop bullying and help children develop strong moral character. They designed the Jimmerosity Positive Peer Pressure Program (P4) to help kids understand the importance of developing strong moral character and to teach them to carefully consider the impact their current decisions will have on their future and that of their classmates. When people understand and internalize the principles of kindness, respect, tolerance, empathy, and compassion, they won’t bully.
