Bullying can be hurtful and harmful for all involved. We can not assume that children know what to do when faced with a bullying situation. At times, children can be unsure of how to react or what to say when faced with a difficult situations that may be bullying. Sometimes parents and caregivers can find it difficult to give informed, helpful advice.
Break Through Bullying products aim to assist children to break the cycle of bullying by giving practical strategies to choose from when faced with bullying situations. Children are empowered to change the situation and how they feel about it by using a strategy suited to their age and level of development. The posters are a visual reminder of the strategies that children can refer to at any time.
Break Through Bullying products aim to assist teachers, guidance counsellors, OSHC workers, learning support teachers, psychologists, child care workers, parents and caregivers through comprehensive teaching notes to refer to when assisting children to learn how to master the skills of positive anti-bullying strategies.
Break Through Bullying aims to offer support to all places of learning and practitioners and continue to develop products and services to assist in breaking the cycle of bullying.
