Knowing what to do with a bully is always easier than knowing how to do it. My program shows kids (ages 5-11) how to deflect bullying in ways that take all the fun out of it for the bully. With parents in attendance for kids younger than 9, I solicit young volunteers to help me demonstrate a not very good way to handle a bully vs. a much better way. Kids never feel embarrassed to participate because I always let them take the winning role. At the end I explain the 5 W's of reporting a bully: who, what, when, where, and WITNESSES!
