4 Anti Bully Techniques That Teach Your Child Confidence & Safety

Posted: June 23, 2018

Hi, I'm Dale "Apollo" Cook with Apollo's Karate & Martial Arts in Tulsa, OK. Today I want to follow up our last Anti-Bully Strategies article and video by giving you some more additional tips to empower your child with additional tactics to avoid confrontation and improve their confidence.  We teach these coping strategies in our martial arts school and our students find them very helpful.

With back to school season upon us, our children already have to deal with many stressful new situations such as new classmates, new teachers, new schools, and the last thing we want for them is to also have to deal with any bullying situations that may be taking place.

ANTI BULLY TIP #1:  TEACH YOUR CHILD THE IMPORTANCE OF PRESENCE


Anti Bully Strategies To Share with Your Kids

Posted: June 23, 2018

Summer is winding down and Back to School season is in full swing.  Parents are anxiously getting their children prepared to return to school, while kids experience their own anxieties about making new friends, facing new peer pressures and unfortunately often having to deal with bullying, which these days often follows them home via social media. 

In this article and video Dale "Apollo" Cook (Owner of Apollo's Karate & Martial Arts) discusses some anti bullying coping strategies to share with your child to help them avoid becoming a victim this upcoming school year.

Bullying is a hot topic;  Most parents are aware of the eventuality that their child might face some bullying situations in schools or with their peers, however most parents also assume that if there were a problem the child would confide with them about the situation.  Unfortunately this is rarely the case, as children who are being bullied statistically do not share this information with adults.  Bullying has been around since the beginning of time, and is unlikely to end any time soon, so the best we can do is empower our children with the skills to not be a victim.

Posted: June 23, 2018

The holiday season is upon us, and it is definitely a very special time of the year.  

Unfortunately, this also means that people become busy and are not always as aware as they should be.

Thieves and criminals are aware of this and become especially active during this time of the year.
