As a mother, I think it's essential that I teach my girls to be respectful to all around them - and raise them to be kind and caring individuals.
Bullying is one thing I cannot stand - and I have always tried to ensure that it's something Nawal and Neve understand is wrong and seriously hurtful.
You Can Sit With Me is an anti-bullying campaign which centres around a highly visible wristband with a life changing message. The idea is that the wristband is worn by children in schools, sports clubs and community groups to show that they welcome anyone to sit with - regardless of age, gender, race, or differences.
But it's not just about the wristbands.
The foundation also provides parents, teachers, schools and community groups with recommendations and guidelines to assist them in spreading the message; encouraging children (and adults) to really think about how they treat others.
I became an ambassador of this incredible cause recently as I truly believe that those 5 words can make a huge difference in someone's life.
You Can Sit With Me are holding a fundraising event at The Ritz Cinema on Sunday June 18th to raise money to train national ambassadors to help spread the message throughout schools across the Australia.
I will be at the screening with my girls and fellow You Can Sit With Me ambassadors, including Manu Fieldel, Jessica Rowe and Sophie Faulkiner.
Proceeds from the sale of each You Can Sit With Me Band goes to The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation to improve the education of our Aboriginal and Refugee communities.
You Can Sit With Me is all about empowering kids to respect others - ensuring that children can always find a safe person when they feel lonely or under threat.
