    Using Emotional Resilience Against Bullies

    Using Emotional Resilience Against Bullies

    Few campaigns rival the strength and popularity of anti-bullying efforts, and justifiably so. It's important to project our kids. But what if there was a different approach, or one of at least equal importance? "If we victim-proof kids, we bully-proof schools," says Brooks Gibbs, award winning resilience educator and author of Raise Them Strong. In this episode, Ed and Renee visit portions of a recent interview with Brooks, and talk through conflicts, apologies, emotional resilience, and "dealing with jerks."

Live these two

These 2 hosts are so easy to listen to and I’m in my 50’s and wish they had been around a long time ago as I have not developed the skills they talk about to get me through social situations! I’m going to share this with my teenage kids and hope they listen as they struggle with social situations too.

I’m in my 20s with Anxiety

This helps me and I was dealing with a lot of traumatic events and I don’t have a therapist because I was kicked out of the mental health office I went to go for mental health and I see how people are really evil. I don’t trust many people again and I was just getting over my anxiety.

I’m a 11 and some times I feel utterly lost and I like these podcasts because they help.🙃
