How To Prevent Your Child From Being Mental or Physical Bullied.
We have to start looking at what typically happens to cause another child to become a bully.
Bullying occurs to a large degree as a response to poor self image and poor self confidence in the bully.
This is important to understand because it leads us to the next point, generally a bully wants what they perceive as an easy target. A bully generally does not want to fight.
This is where we can transform the bullied child so that the bully will not want to pick on them.
A bully wants to try to intimidate another child to make themselves feel empowered.
We can’t prevent bullying by telling kids to run away from or ignore a bully. These tactics do not work. In many cases, it will make the bullying worse.
The bully will not target a fit, confident child that looks them dead in the eyes without backing down.
Our kids just need the confidence that they can protect themselves.
The only way for them to have real confidence is to know that they can protect themselves.
They gain this confidence from training in Jiu Jitsu martial arts classes. They get better over time and prove itto themselves as they work safely in class against other kids all the while having fun and getting in phenomenal shape.
The only path to real confidence is through experience. It can’t be faked. It must be earned through actions over time.
Kids develop an unshakable self confidence in Jiu Jitsu and that confidence transfers to all parts of their lives leading to greater achievements and better relationships… not just in preventing bullying.
Our kids don’t get bullied and in the rare case when they do, they can handle it both mentally and physically… not by punching or kicking the bully in the head which would get them into a lot of trouble.
If the bully does attack them, they take them down and easily control them by putting them in a position where the bully is helpless but not injured. Once this happens, the bullying stops.
