Family Connections – We Can Stop Bullying!

This is a show you don’t want to miss! Barbara Coloroso, renowned author of The Bully, The Bullied, and The Bystander, Kids Are Worth It!, and Extraordinary Evil, joins Family Connections in a stimulating and heartfelt discussion about bullying and its effects not only our children, but our communities, and country. Barbara defines bullying and its differences from conflict, and the differences between teasing and taunting. You’ll learn how to create a norm for positive, compassionate and caring behavior. We’ll talk about the ‘bully circle’, and help listeners understand the roles of the bully, those who support bullying behaviors, those who watch without intervening, and those who are bullied. We’ll also talk about the ‘net neighborhood’, and cyber bullying. This is an informative and stimulating show that demonstrates what to do and what not to do to help the target of bullying. It’s an hour well-spent learning how to change bullying behavior–when kids are hurt by bullying, it impacts us all!
