I am a member of the advisory committee. You are an active part of a Parent-Teacher or Parent – School advisory committee. You want to give the school ideas for managing bullying, but it seems like everything is the same, or there are problems deciding how to approach the issue of bullying. What is okay to talk about?. Is it okay to bring up suicide? Will a presentation leave the students better or worse? How can you decide what is best for the school community? What program is going to change the school culture for the better and ripple into the community? As an organization, No Such Thing as a Bully doesn’t promise to end bullying in the world, just help people cope, and clean up their own corners of the world…but if bullying IS going to be ended, it’s going to begin with you… parents who can end the cycle before it even begins, using the No Such Thing as a Bully skills in your own home, and introducing them to other decision makers in your school. Invest in your child’s future. Build peace in your home. GET THE BOOK FOR PARENTS HERE!! Read Nickie Therens, (Saskatchewan Warrior Mom) experience with the No Such Thing as a Bully System.

There are many needs within a school related to the safety of students. Money needs to be easily raised and wisely spent. We can help with that. We are creating a Kindness T-Shirt Campaign, and can work with Parent/School Committees to add coupons to the books for parents and sell them. SCHOOL WEBSITE MEMBERSHIP When you become a member of the website, we provide your staff with 25 lesson plans for schools and a plan for implementing the system in your school. We can more intensively train certain staff members so that you have staff members who are certified in teaching the No Such Thing as a Bully System. The system encourages the building of a bully prevention team within your school to carry the work forward. Parents and families need to take more responsibility in the issue as well, and so we provide the tools to work toward consistency in positive communication skills in both homes and schools. NO SUCH THING AS A BULLY SUGGESTED POLICY We’ve developed a policy for you to use and adapt for your school. It has been developed using best practices ideas from PrevNet (Canada) and Bully Police USA. We provide this to schools even if they are not members of our system because we want everyone to have to tools to be better. You can find the policy at this link. MOMENT OF KINDNESS FOUNDATION ALLIANCE We believe that it is important to address bullying with more than trauma. The association is so strong at present that in many situations suicide seems to become almost a self fulfilling prophecy. We provide the alternative focus of kindness. Moment of Kindness Action cards are a trendy way to combine Random Acts of Kindness with technology. Focus on kindness as the opposite of bullying. TIPS PREVENTION PLATFORM We know that there are issues with how bullying issues are reported and investigated. We want to help you with that as well. We promote an electronic system called TIPS Prevention Platform – Threat Intervention Protection System. This additional system allows electronic reporting of issues that immediately go to the bullying prevention team for investigation, according to school policy. Less balls are dropped. More dots are connected. Issues are resolved early and tragedies are prevented. This system can assist not only in bullying related issues, but also in tracking gang activity and school violence.
