"40 Developmental Assets"
We have received valuable feedback from our daily tips newsletter subscribers. In response, we have now included information and advice for adult victims of bullies. You might be intimidated by the CEO of a huge corporation who holds your job in his or her power, or by a bully who lives down the block, or by a co-worker, your hairdresser, your spouse, or even your own kids. Our newsletter has been redesigned to give tips, help, and advice to victims of all ages.
You, as parents, must keep in mind that it is your responsibility to educate and protect your children in every way. To rely on teachers and schools alone to give the life lessons that are so important would be a HUGE mistake!
The Number 1 Sign a Bully Looks For...
Lack of self-confidence and low-self-esteem. The bully will always look for what they believe to be the weakest target. They don't want to take a chance on someone fighting back. They are out to prove their superiority, not to look foolish.
Does your child walk with his/her head down? Does he/she appear timid? Do you KNOW that your child lacks self-confidence and self-esteem?
You Need to Step Up and Take Action!
You can help your children build their self-esteem and self-confidence easier than you think! It is simply a matter of doing little things consistently, day in and day out, that helps them to feel good about themselves.
Good self-esteem and self-confidence will cause your child to walk with their head up and their shoulders back. The bully will look for someone else to target.
Allow Us to Introduce Ourselves
Hello my name is Lisa. I am a 7th grade teacher at Odyssey Middle School in Orlando, Florida.
I love teaching and have dedicated myself to improving and inspiring young minds to be all that they can be.
Sadly, I have also witnessed the results of low self-esteem and low self-confidence. As the headline from ABC's 20/20 says, middle school is fertile ground for bullies. That is why it is imperative that we start bully proofing our children from birth!
I've also had the opportunity to meet with many, many parents. A common thread among them is their frustration on how to help their children feel confident and secure.
I'm a firm believer that we can help children help themselves by building their self-esteem and self-confidence.
That is why my husband and I have put together a daily tip newsletter to help parents with this quest of raising Bully Free Kids!
God bless my wife, she truly is dedicated to the kids that are our future.
Hi, I'm Steve. I'm the other half.
Actually, I should say I'm 1/5th of the team. You see we also have three daughters who help us, through trial and error, develop the skills that we hope to share with you.
My profession is that of a Program Director, running three karate schools. If you happen to be in Orlando, feel free to drop by Internal Power Martial Arts and say hello.
Parents bring their kids to our martial arts schools for a variety of reasons, however the main ones that I hear are that they want their children to have more focus, or more self-control. The kids, on the other hand, want to learn how to fight like the Power Rangers or Bruce Lee.
The truth of the matter is that the parents and the kids both get what they want, kind of! The children do gain more focus and self-control which, in turn, raises their self-esteem and self-confidence. They also learn not to fight. That's right, not to fight. That's because with heightened self-confidence and self-esteem, they do not need to prove themselves. With greater self-control, they know how to walk away from a fight.
Don't get me wrong, they also learn how to defend themselves if confronted with a situation where they can't walk away.
A good martial arts school will tell you that the martial arts is only the avenue. The destination is successful, focused, determined, self-confident, respectful, courteous kids with lots of self-control.
Included in our daily tip newsletter is insight from some of the most respected martial artists in the world.
Most Importantly We are Parents!
Our experience not only comes from being parents, but it just so happens that our professions also involve dealing with children. We feel very lucky that we can have such an impact on so many lives. It's not a responsibility that we take lightly.
We would like to share with you our 'Bully-Free Living' daily tip newsletter. You will receive it in your email Monday through Friday for an entire year.
Each tip is brief, concise, and to the point on how you can help build self-esteem and self-confidence in yourself and your children. There will also be tips on improving and lowering your stress levels. We believe that children, by association, can reflect the stress levels of their parents, and that the ability of the parents to control their stress can be extremely beneficial to their child's mental health.
We will share with you our advice as well as advice from others who deal with these issues everyday.
