Free Online Parent Workshop Tackles Bullying

Free Online Parent Workshop Tackles Bullying
Posted on 10/26/2018
CIMS has partnered with social skills expert Brooks Gibbs to offer students and parents a special online video training program, “Raise Them Strong.” 

The program includes a student and parent module, which helps tackle difficult issues on bullying. Gibbs empowers students to grow in their emotional resilience while assisting with anger management and social skills.
 
Starting next week, all 7th grade science and 8th grade history students will complete one lesson each week for the next seven weeks.
 
“We are implementing this program to empower our students to make good decisions and to maximize their ability to prevent themselves from becoming a victim,” said Dan Gervais, assistant principal at CIMS.
 
Topics covered in this program will help your child deal with these things and more:
 
•       Cyberbullying
•       Social Exclusion
•       Physical Aggression
•       Hurtful Jokes
•       Rumors
 
The online parent companion to the student module offers 7 lessons with accompanying videos and worksheets that teach parents how to build resilient kids. 

Unlike physical resilience, that is only built by repeatedly being exposed to pain... emotional resilience is built through simple education. Therefore this course will teach you how to teach so that your child can learn how to learn.
 
Common issues like bullying, cyberbullying, social exclusion, etc. will be addressed. The videos also help you establish a learning pattern that you and your child can follow so that you are best prepared to address any issues that threaten your child's resilience and sense of happiness.
 
As you go through this program, please make a special effort to practice the resilience skills that you learn. Parents model behavior that their child will reflect. So don't be a hypocrite! Practice what you teach.
