NEW YORK (PRWEB) February 08, 2018
All parents have the power to raise confident and respectful children -- in the schoolyard and online -- who mitigate and prevent bullying. With the help of leading experts, personal stories and a sense of humor, "Superheroes Wear Mom Jeans: The Tangled Ball® Guide to Anti-Bullying for Parents of Young Children", parents can untangle the messy and complicated issue of bullying for their children.
Bullying behavior impacts millions of children, starting as young as 4 years-old and sadly often results in a range of devastating consequences. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way.
Leadership is the anti-bully.
Research and findings from the most prestigious institutions such as Harvard, Yale, Committee for Children, the Alberti Center for Bullying Abuse Prevention, PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center, Understood, and International Bullying Prevention Association (IBPA) show one key concept over and over: leadership is the anti-bully. Leading experts in the fields of parenting, bullying prevention and online safety, share skill-building leadership techniques to help parents successfully guide their children through life’s inevitable social ups and downs.
“Bullying issues start young and solutions are just like a good pair of jeans. There’s no such thing as ‘one size fits all’,” says speaker and author Susan S. Raisch. “But the most consistent piece of advice experts give children is ‘Tell a trusted adult.’ For a variety of reasons, it’s estimated that 64% of kids stay silent. This is a statistic that needs to improve, and as those trusted adults, or “Go-To Adults,” it’s within our power to get them the help they need and deserve.”
The discussion questions following each chapter, or each “string,” are ideal for group conversation and workshops.
