Posts Tagged ‘What to do when my child is bullied’

Bullying occurs when there is a power imbalance between the bully and the victim.  The Imbalance can occur from a physical standpoint or a social standpoint–meaning the bully feels he/she has power over the victim.

Power can appear in different forms: Verbal teasing/ Name calling,  written or cyber taunting, or physical strength.

Bullying, in a lot of cases, can be prevented by living a lifestyle of presenting yourself with confidence, being assertive, always being kind and having a positive attitude.

Over the course of this month, we will discuss a variety of techniques and strategies that can be used to balance the power; without having to use strength or force to physically defend yourself against a bully.

We use Martial Arts as a tool to improve confidence within our students; to assert themselves before (or during) a bullying situation.  The strategies we teach will decrease the possibility of your child of becoming a victim and increase the likelihood your child will become an up-stander by standing up for those being bullied–instead of a bystander.

You can help support our discussions by speaking with your children about bullying.  Discuss the importance that confidence, assertiveness, kindness, and a positive attitude and how it plays a key role in preventing bullying before it starts.  We also encourage you to come up with a positive family plan of action so your children will know just want you expect them to do when faced with a bully.

We are proud to help you and your children learn more to stop Bullying. Thank you for being a part of our STOP BULLYING Month!

This month, our weekly mat chats focus on our awareness about bullying.  We will discuss what a bully is and how to handle bullying before, and after it occurs.
