Bully-Proof Your Child By Teaching Them How to Be Resilient


Who is in charge in your house?  Interesting question isn’t it?  Most will say the parent or parents.  However, if your kids are doing the following, they are in charge and you as the parent are just along for the ride.  Do they throw a fit when they don’t get their way, and YOU give in?  Do they control the schedule and decide most aspects of their and your life and they are not even a teenager yet?  Is it hard to get them to do work or chores?  What about homework, do you have to fight them to get it done?  If you answered yes to any of these, I have bad news for you, YOUR kids are in charge not you.   We can help you gain control and help your kids find direction with your guidance.

Do you need to discipline your child?  The answer is Yes, but what is the best way?  Discipline is not a one size fits all, and it entails so much more than behavior correction.  The Resilient Path will help you understand the complete picture of a child’s behavior and discipline strategies.  Let us help you with our experience and observation.

We can never get rid of Bullies, they will always be around.  We can help our children not be targets of bullies and be resistant to that type of aggression.  Children who are resilient are targeted for bully aggression much less than other kids.  Resilient, disciplined children are more likely to be leaders and are much more confident than children who grow up in households without rules and boundaries.

Being a Parent is the most important thing you will ever do in life.  It is not easy, but it is well worth the effort.  Parents are so very important in more ways than most realize.  Being a good parent is hard, let us help you be the best parent you can be.  We have seen every type of child and family over the years and have seen what works and what doesn’t.


Best Way to Protect Your Kids From Bullying



The best way to protect your kids from bullying is to empower them to focus on their own goals and dreams.  

In Part 2 of my interview with Simon Benn about bullying, we discuss his methods and strategies to help kids gain confidence in themselves.  By being more confident in their own abilities and sense of self, kids learn the minimize the effect of bullying. 

We can give our kids powerful tools to deal with abuse that bullies try to inflict on them.  Simon and I discussed:

  • children are resilient
  • bullying is not their fault
  • children can learn how not to be a victim
  • We are not our feelings

Through his work, Simon helps children rebuild confidence in themselves by taking their focus away from the bully.  

When we are mothering solo, we need all the help we can get. When our children are being bullied, we have to take time away from work and other responsibilities.  

By having strong strategies in place such as enforcing our children's sense of self, we can spend more of our time focusing on parenting.
