“The Bully Proof Kid” is a Bullying Prevention Program that does more than just preach at kids to be “nice” and “respectful” to one another. It teaches kids (as well as teens and adults) what to do in order to stop being the target or “victim” of aggressive people who didn’t “get the memo” about being kind and respectful.
The point of this program is to help students learn how to manage their own reactions and emotions — empowering them to use peaceful “Ninja-Jedi Mind Mastery tools” to get out of the Bullying Cycle BEFORE it gets started in the first place.
The program delivers immediately useful and powerful “take away” tools to assist students to defuse potentially dangerous confrontations with bullies while keeping their self esteem and self respect intact.
In order for the “Bully” to exist in the first place, he or she must have a victim. Certain thoughts and actions people engage in actually attract bullies and teasing.
Strangely enough many former bullies become friends once you allow them to stop pushing you around.To focus on self empowerment is not to advocate fighting as a solution to bullying.
Quite the opposite. Kids need to learn how to stand up for themselves in ways that no longer invite aggression. The process first starts with you. By changing how we perceive of bullies we can change our habitual, internal reactions leading to more effective, More powerful behaviors.
If we understand why a person acts out like a bully we can then defuse his or her aggressive behavior. If we understand how our own behavior attracts bullies and what to do to stop it, we can change that as well.
