Teaching is an amazing profession. Teachers are amazing people. You manage 20 plus children each moment of each day, five days a week, with goals to be met, people to answer to and feelings to be massaged.
There is barely enough time and energy! You need solutions that allow you to be consistent and support as you try to manage bullying issues in and out of the classroom. You are often expected to be more than human. There are not enough eyes in the hallways, on the playground, or even in the classroom to know what’s really going on with the students. Parents need to be more involved and you need to have strong ideas and skills to give to them to help them resolve situations in their own home…even problems that they might not want to admit.
We want to help you. We can incorporate skills that students need to prevent bully actions and victim responses into your classroom. We can help your school systematically manage bullying issues while giving you the tools to help parents understand bullying differently and work with the school in a consistent way to help their children grow strong and confident. We provide skills and ideas that will increase your own emotional ability to cope with the stresses of teaching, and that you can pass on to everyone who crosses your path.
We know budget is always an issue for schools. 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.
The No Such Thing as a Bully System believes that the focus can not only be placed on schools to solve this issue. Bullying is something that occurs in and out of school and is only solved with the assistance of a child’s home. Adults need to learn the skills that prevent bully actions and victim responses and use them in their homes, just as they need to be introduced and used in schools. No Such Thing as a Bully provides tools and training for parents to assist you with sharing responsibility for solutions.
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. Teachers tend to get a lot of allegations of bullying and need to sort through them. We want to train parents and students to manage small problems well, and then to have a systemic method of reporting issues when they need help. 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.
