An Anti-bullying Program that Works!
We all know that bullying exists and is having a disastrous impact on the health and well-being of our young people. What we need to know is what we can do about it so that every child is cherished and respected and has an opportunity to achieve their unique potential in a kind and affirming community.
What I want to do with this booklet is provide parents with an easily accessible reference guide that gives them effective tips, tools and techniques to use to develop a bully proof child.

Why do bullies bully? Well, they bully others for 4 reasons.
When attempting to put a stop to antisocial behaviour like bullying we must always keep in mind what motivates it. Responding to the behaviour without considering what motivates it is futile.
