No Such Thing as a Bully
Does your child talk about being treated badly by his peers, and you don't know what to do? Does the school tell you to make your child stop bullying, and you don't know how?
You'll find the answers inside.
For years and years we have talked about bullies and victims. We've talked about them enough that the words have shaped the lives of many people. It's time for a whole new framework!
NO MORE will we speak of bullies and victims.
NO MORE will we give power to the ideas that bullying is inherent in our society.
This new framework throws traditional bullying on its head, examining bully actions and victim responses and teaching lessons that help each and every one of us, adult and child, stop ourselves from falling into either category. People who communicate well and have developed a strong self-concept, balanced thinking, balanced approaches and empathy for others are less likely to use bully actions or victim responses. Bystanders are strengthened and culture is changed.
It's that simple.
