Elephant’s Fork Elementary School
"Bucket fillers" are those who help without being asked, give hugs and compliments, and generally spread their love and good feelings to others. The simple metaphor of a bucket helps even preschoolers understand the importance of consideration and love, particularly towards those who bully.
"Bucket dippers" rob us of happy feelings by refusing to help with a task or by saying or doing cruel things. The challenging problem of "bullying" or "bucket dipping" usually rears its ugly head in the first few weeks of school. “An empty bucket poisons our outlook, saps our energy, and undermines our will. That’s why every time someone dips into our bucket, it hurts us.”
Want to resolve bullying or bucket dipping? Get your child or your entire school turned on to this concrete concept and make a change - for good. Carol McCloud's book addresses this issue by helping kids understand that we are all the same, in that we all want some kindness in our lives, every day. Especially bullies!
The Bucketfilling concept is NOT our creation. Carol McCloud first heard the idea that a "bucket" represented a person's self-concept, or mental and emotional health, at an early childhood conference in the 1990's. It was in the 1960's, that Dr. Donald O. Clifton ( ), first created the "Dipper and Bucket" story that has now been passed along for decades. Dr. Clifton later went on to co-author the #1 New York Times bestseller How Full Is Your Bucket? and be named the Father of Strengths Psychology. Their book and website are excellent tools for work and life.
“Like the cup that runneth over, a full bucket gives us a positive outlook and renewed energy. Every drop in that bucket makes us stronger and more optimistic.”
“So we face a choice every moment of every day: We can fill one another’s buckets, or we can dip from them. It’s an important choice~ one that profoundly influences our relationships, productivity, health, and happiness”
Positive feelings protect us from the negative ones! They make kids feel good! They help kids cope. They build resilience.
