    How To Deal With Bullies (And what to do if you are the bully...)

    How To Deal With Bullies (And what to do if you are the bully...)

    Face it, we've all dealt with bullies in our lives. If you haven't, you're lying to yourself...or you might be the bully. As a result, society in the public space is rife with "anti-bullying" campaigns. While the intention behind these initiatives is well-intended, might they be stealing the gifts of handling adversity from the next generation. The fact of the matter is at some point, our children will face a bully...whether in grade school, or when they're grown, out of the house, and moving into their careers. 

    Topics Covered:

    1. Everyone gets bullied.

    2. The bully also has a story.

    3. Physical prowess and presence as a bullying deterrent.

    4. The importance of setting boundaries.

    5. Let your kids solve their own problems.

👍🏻👍🏻

MONK gives holistic perspectives on relevant life topics—all with the integration of Christian values. Only listened to a few, but the one that walks thru the Bhagavad Gita was a real gem.
