Bullying is a problem for kids all over the world. In the U.S. alone, thirty percent of children are abused in some kind of bullying - and sometimes it leads to tragic results. So what do you do?
Josh Yandt was bullied for years. When his father died, other students tormented him by tearing down pictures of his father out of his locker. He became socially withdrawn, and his mom ended up moving the family to a new city for a clean slate.
At his new school, he discovered that by doing one little thing he could change how people reacted to him and end the bullying forever.
He started opening doors.
"Not many people hold doors, right?" he said. "But after that, people started to open up to me. Opening a door is more than a physical act, it’s about putting yourself out there, getting to know people, making them feel comfortable, making them feel welcome. Opening doors gives people hope that people care."
