Bullying for Parents
Define – Resolve – Prevent
This presentation offers parents and families a chance to fully determine what can be classified as bullying, what to do when their child is being affected by it, and how to prevent it from happening in the first place.
By perceiving bullying as a relationship issue we place a lens on our community groups (school, family, neighbourhood, etc.) to better understand why young people might be hurting each other as they do. There are so many mixed messages in society today regarding the kind of person one should strive to become, and unfortunately, a lot of our ‘role models’ are less than exemplary. To make matters worse, anxiety is on the rise so our young people are reacting in some unhealthy ways – like hurting themselves or each other!
Undoubtedly, parents could always use some empathic support in this complex arena – their child’s social lives. As their child might be a victim or an aggressor, or even an ashamed and afraid bystander, parents could definitely use some informed support so that they can better handle each new situation as it arises.
Through a heart-centred yet practical approach, parents can equip themselves with some strategies to better guide their child towards a more connected social life. This session offers a practical cognitive method to support young people to take charge of their thoughts and learn to better control their re/actions in order to navigate their social world in a healthier manner.
The interactive presentation offers:
- Effectively classifying bullying, and learning what to do when your child is a victim, an aggressor, or a bystander.
- Strategies and systems for parents to handle bullying
- Social and emotional initiatives to support parents

S has been doing a lot better. Now that she has the tools from you she actually uses them on a daily basis. Even at home!! I see her so much stronger just in a few days after she met you for the first time. And her confidence! Wow!!! I’m so lucky to have met you. I really don’t know what I would have done. I would definitely recommend you to my family and friends!! I see the difference in her she’s very out spoken now where as she used to keep everything inside. Her bullies are afraid of her now which makes me so happy – she can stand up for herself. Thank you Jodi.J
