Bully-Prevention: 10 Bully Slogans for Children

Bully Sign
 
  My friends won't include
 mean kids who are rude.
 


PARENTS, TEACH KIDS POSITIVE MOTTOES to repeat over and over and give your children a lifetime gift. How? Because when kids recite upbeat thoughts with repetition, those thoughts will likely come to mind when needed. Echoing good thoughts strengthens the brain paths on which they travel.

Powerful positive rhymes also reinforce those brainwaves. They are like the songs that stick in our heads. They are pleasant and can motivate us to act.

Today’s parenting gift includes 10 anti-bullying rhymes like:

  1. I won’t bully others. They’re my sisters and brothers.
  2. My friends won’t include mean kids who are rude.
  3. A bullying tongue offends everyone.
Indian Boy Talking
 
A bullying tongue offends everyone.

 

 Get all 10 of these anti-bullying verses. Ask your child to pick his favorite. Suggest he say it often, post it on the fridge, and act on it when needed.

Better yet, have an anti-bully brainstorming dinner. Write down as many rhymes as your children can think of. Ask each child to choose the one they want to repeat and post it where they will see it as a reminder.

Their intention is to hurt the other.

2. Increase your bravery by asking yourself, “Is anyone in my family modeling this behavior?”

Bullying Signs: How Parents Recognize Problems and Create Solutions

Child Comforting SMALL
 
"My Powerful Mind Is Thoughtful and
Kind."

 

WHY DO SOME KIDS BULLY OTHERS? Research says that bullying can give kids a sense of power and prestige. The bully wants to have others think he's important. When he hurts kids, he feels dominant and strong. It's hard for bullies to give up such feelings.

 

Some bullies come from abusive homes and treat others like they have been treated. 

 

Research also says that bullies pick on weak fearful kids. Children who are socially awkward, lack self-control, hyperactive, and don't fit in, become easy targets.

 

How Parents Can Help 

In today's article, How Parents Turn Bullies into Caring Kids, you can help both the bully and the bullied child. You will find:

 

  •  7 signs your child could be a bully-follower
  • 3 questions smart kids should ask about bullies
  • 10 parent and child discussions about bullying
  • 10 anti-bullying slogans for your child's self-talk

Bullying and Peer Pressure: Parenting Kids to Choose Empathy + Video

Peer Pressure
How Parents Help Kids Avoid Bullying

 

BULLIES BURN BRIDGES BY WHAT THEY SAY AND DO . They destroy connections like trust, friendship, and future relationships with their victims.

Bullying and Peer Pressure

By seeming powerful, bullies can influence other kids. Some children are afraid to say, “No” to the bully. Others follow because they want to "fit in."

Victims never forget how the bully made them feel nor do they forget who followed the bully’s pressure against them.  Being hurt physically, verbally, and/or emotionally, creates painful memories in the mind of the victim. They always remember. Some take revenge.

How Parents Can Help

Whether you suspect you are raising a bully or a bullied child, you CAN guide your child with good discussions.

Many children lack the experience to be wise about causing painful feelings and the importance of caring about others. You can raise their consciousness.

In today’s video, you will find 10 strategic questions to get your child to think more deeply about bullying, to consider the victim’s feelings, and to build the bridge of empathy.

As a bonus, you’ll also find 5 self-talk mottos to help your child choose caring and empathy over bullying.

Feel free to copy the transcript below the video with both the questions and mottos.

Family Discussions:

Use one question from the video per dinner discussion to find out what your child really thinks about bullying. Hold back from jumping in with your opinions. Listen well. Be sure you understand your child's thoughts before you speak.

Enjoy helping your children think wisely about the problems and pain that bullies cause because you CAN inspire them to choose caring instead.

How Parents Encourage Kids to Love Learning - 5 Simple Ways

Boy
 
How to Raise a Thinking Child!

 

Parents, is your child a thinker? Does he like to learn? Or do you push, beg, and bribe him to use his brain, do his homework, and love learning?

Raising an open-minded youngster, who can see more than one side of an opinion, isn’t easy. For some odd reason there are universities that want students to avoid questioning, think one way, and repeat only what they are told. We can not allow our children to be blindfolded to more than one side of an issue.

How can you help your child become a well-rounded thinking adult?

Good thinking skills start at home. As parents, you have the unique opportunity to expand your child’s mind.

In today’s parenting gift you’ll find 5 easy ways to raise thinking children. Two brief videos are included. The first video asks 6 great questions.  Copy them for your dinner discussions. The script below the video is waiting for you to download.

I suggest you also copy this parenting freebie to add to a 3-hole binder and use it whenever you need it.

Please pick up your gift at: Love of Learning. Use code word: LEARN and then download.
