Three anti bully and character education tips that every student can use.
This school year thousands of students will go to school with the ambition and excitement to learn. Unfortunately, many of them either not want to go to school or dread the hours they are in school. Not because of what they are being taught or the staff, but because they will not like the bully type of environment that they may be subject to. According to the national bully statistics 56% of all students in the US have witness a bullying crime take place in school and the community.
“This is a tragedy,” says Anti Bullying and Character education expert and Top Selling author, Jamahl Keyes, “The student that is being bullied and the student that is acting as a bully are both suffering the needed and necessary character education and leadership skills needed to be successful in the world,”
Here are Anti Bullying and Character education program speaker Jamahl Keyes three anti bullying and character education survival skills every student must know to be successful:
You must have a vision of what you aspire to be and your goals…Every student must have a clear and defined vision of what they aspire to be. This helps the person being bullied because they are able to look pass any obstacle (like a bully) and feel a since of purpose and self worth. This helps the person doing the bullying because they understand what they may loose in the process of bullying and harassing people.
Be willing to adapt to change…The most constant thing in every student and adults life is change. The person being bullied handles change in their lives differently then the person inflicting bully type behavior. The bottom-line both are handling change horribly. The way you adapt to change will determine how successful you will be not only in school but also in your life.
Embrace mentorship… We only learn two ways in life through experience or mentors, it is important for every student to find mentors. It is important for the student being bullied because it will allow them to feel comfortable seeking help, and it is important for the student bullying because it will allow them to express what is making them manifest such bad behavior.
