I was determined to figure out how to solve this bullying problem, I knew I had to help my child because the school wasn't going to.
Finally, our family created a plan of action to turn the situation around. I run the largest self defence web site in the world, and help adults defend themselves when they are verbally bullied.
I taught my son how to use the most awesome responses when kids picked on him. He slayed his bully with words in front of the class, and all of a sudden the bullying stopped. Now my son knew what to say and how to say it, he was no longer a bully magnet at school.
I dug a little deeper to understand why certain kids get picked on and the psychology behind social status and how it works.
Using the methods I learned, we rebuilt our son's confidence, and focused on ways he could shine and regain social status with his peers.
Parents visiting my verbal self defence web site kept asking me to write a book for their kids who were getting picked on at school.
I created a program called Verbal Self Defence for Kids Made Easy and was really turning situations around for kids at school who ere being picked on a publicly humiliated by classmates.
Going through a bullying situation is so stressful, and something I would never wish on anyone.
If you bullyproof your child in advance, you can ensure that your child isn't a an easy target for bullies at school.
And now I'd like to help your family bully proof your child.
