Melania Trump launches 'BE BEST' awareness campaign for kids

Melania Trump launches initiative to prevent child bullying

First lady Melania Trump unveiled her "Be Best" initiative on Monday, a campaign to help bring awareness to the most important issues facing the nation's children including overall well-being, social media and opioid abuse.

During Monday's event, the first lady invited Mr. Trump to sign an official proclamation marking May 7 as "Be Best" Day, and he hailed the first lady's initiative as "heartfelt".

As first lady, Melania Trump has spoken about bullying and other issues affecting children since her husband, President Donald Trump, assumed office over a year ago. Something unique though: "She has not narrowed her platform down to just one topic as has been done in the past", Grisham said.

"When children learn positive online behaviors early on, social media can be used in productive ways and can affect positive change", she said.

"As a mother and as first lady, it concerns me that in today's fast-paced and ever-connected world, children can be less prepared to express or manage their emotions and often times turn to forms of destructive or addictive behavior such as bullying, drug addiction or even suicide", she said in prepared remarks.

Woods three-putted twice for bogey, including the par-3 sixth hole when he had a downhill birdie chance from about 18 feet. Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy enjoyed a third round 66 which leaves him in a group of nine at three under.

Most modern wives of presidents have opted to choose one standout point of interest and use their elevated status to promote or encourage it.

Trump has visited children's hospitals, both here and overseas, and she has also visited schools, including one in MI last October, where she encouraged middle schoolers to practice understanding and self-confidence. Though she has been somewhat reclusive during her time at the White House, the First Lady has visited hospitals across the globe and visited with families impacted by the opioid epidemic. "Just listen to your heart, but be yourself", she told them.

Sanders was asked about it by CBS Radio's Steven Portnoy, who pinned the rumor on a Sunday Washington Post story about the first couple's "separate schedule [and] different priorities". "I have been criticized for my commitment to tackling this issue and I know that will continue". "I feel strongly that as adults, we can and should "be best" at educating our children about the importance of a healthy and balanced life".

"I am happy to report that since posting her video, many have watched it and most importantly, people have reached out to offer support and kindness", the first lady said Monday as she recognized Goldberg. BE BEST will highlight the importance of using social media and the internet in positive ways. "But it will not stop me from doing what I know is right".
