When children can be involved in something they are passionate about and their skill level builds, so will their confidence. Physically activity, such as exercise can help your child grow stronger physically, which in turn increases their mental strength, too.
A child's voice will be one of their biggest tools in life so it's imperative that they learn how to use it. All ages need to know that it's ok to set verbal boundaries and speak out against wrongdoing for themselves and others. Utilizing their voice allows the child to take control of the situation.
Be prepared to defend yourself. Remaining friendly, staying calm and walking away may not always work in trying to de-escalate or avoid a bullying situation. This workshop will provide each child with the skills needed on how to assess and react when bullying turns physical.
