Anti-Bullying Speakers - Nix the Negative

We all have sat under one of those anti-bullying speakers that do their very best to scare you and your students into believing that if they bully, it will come back around to bite them. Does it work? Have we truly seen fruit from these assemblies? Are they relevant?

To catch the students in their tracks, we must be able to relate to them and encourage. Overcoming bullying at school won’t be erased with more bullying, no matter who the source is. Our youth can see past fake stories and can see the irony when bullying is being used to counteract bullying.

Bullies will often blame those around them when a problem arises. You will find a common lack of empathy when studying bullies behavior. They also tend to see violence as a good thing, or the only option. When choosing an anti-bullying speaker, it is vital to find one that uses none of the above “Bully” tactics to try to persuade students not to bully. It may seem simple, but many turn to these very same strategies to prove a point.

Stand your ground.  Don't back down.

What does it mean to stand your ground? People today are
constantly making commitments and breaking them.  Look at
divorce rates, credit card debts, New Years's resolutions... and
the list of unfulfilled promises goes on.  It it even possible to
keep our commitments?

Stand your ground,  Don't back down.

Joel Penton says, "Yes it is possible" - he knows from
experience.  Like most of your students, Joel was put into
situations in middle school and high school where it would
have been easy to compromise and break his commitments.
However, he chose to rise above the pressure and keep the
committments he made in school, in football, and in life.

Stand your ground.  Don't back down.

Joe will say that it takes character, it takes will, and the road
will be hard.  But his personal experience is proof that ordinary
people can accomplish great things by simply following through
with the commitments they have made.  Your students will be
inspired and reminded of the importance of not just making
committments, but also keep those commitments.

Don't back down.  Stand your ground.
