March Parent Academy Event

Bullies to Buddies

Wednesday, March 15th, 2023

7:00-8:30 PM

In this workshop, you will learn how to teach your child how to respond to verbal aggression from others. The Bullies to Buddies method, developed by psychologist Izzy Kalman, is a social skills program that uses role-playing to teach children how to respond to bullying. Most anti-bullying programs are based on identifying and punishing the bully. Bullies to Buddies teaches how to respond to verbal aggression in a way that immediately decreases the incidence of bullying and increases resilience. This method doesn’t just change the lives of individual children; it has the potential to change the entire culture of a school and its community.

Why You Should Attend:

Learn what you can do to bully-proof your child

Help your child know how to respond when other children are mean

Empower your child to become more resilient

Presenter: Connie Palmer is an experienced teacher, therapist, and school counselor with thirty years of experience working with children. Throughout her career, she has been on a quest to find a solution to the problem of bullying and is now on a mission to share the gold she has found in the Bullies to Buddies curriculum. This seminar will help you understand the causes of bullying and will give you techniques that will make a difference in your child’s life.

Location- OAS auditorium
