TESTIMONIALS

Break Through Bullying products offer children a visual aid to remind them of appropriate anti-bullying strategies. It is an easy, kid- friendly method of understanding the various techniques children may use to combat bullying. It highlights the different forms of bullying so that children can learn the correct way to manage a situation. As a psychologist, these products can reinforce behaviours that have been modelled in small group or one-to-one sessions. I find these aids both helpful and fun when teaching kids the essentials about bullying. Christine Bagley-Jones, Counselling Psychologist

"Thank you so much for your Break Through Bullying presentation. It was effective for our class. The students now openly discuss things they have seen and experienced while at school, and refer to the skills on the poster. They also try acting in a manner that helps create a positive and productive classroom environment.” Year 6 Classroom Teacher

"As a parent of a very gentle natured 6 year old, I have found the Break Through Bullying AWARE poster very helpful. I found Break Through Bullying when I was searching the internet. My son has had the AWARE poster on his wall ever since and we have referred to it many times to give him strategies to deal with children that he is feeling threatened by. I would highly recommend Break Through Bullying posters to any parent, child and even adults who are having difficulty with bullying in their lives." Concerned Parent
