Here’s one of my favorite videos of Izzy Kalman, founder of www.Bullies2Buddies.com demonstrating one of the simplest and most effective techniques to stop teasing and name calling: simply agreeing with whatever the “bully” says.
A lot of educators are looking for research based bullying solutions. Well here is one scientific question we have to ask of any bullying prevention strategy: “Is it able to be duplicated?”
I’m happy to say it is. I’ve been testing these concepts with students and teachers all over the country and the results are consistent. Shocking but true. These techniques are simple AND effective. In future posts I’ll be sharing some of my live performance programs and one on one interviews with kids demonstrating that anyone who wants to can immunize themselves from teasing, name calling and stop bullying before it gets physical.
