Bullying is the Number 2 Epidemic in the US. Cool Kind Kid has Proactive, Social Skills and Anti-Bullying Solutions for Parents, Educators, and Children.
THE PROBLEM: Bullying is in the news every day. All 50 states now have legislation in place directing school districts to adopt anti-bullying policies. Many of these policies are reactive; and are not addressing the root cause of the problem. Research is now showing that reactive measures are not working.
THE ROOT CAUSE: When asked why we have a bullying epidemic, the simple answer is because we have a rudeness epidemic. It’s been shown that incivility leads to bullying and bullying in turn can escalate into violence. The challenge is breaking the cycle at the beginning, the rudeness or incivility, which is the easiest part to address. Current research is supporting proactive social skills, or social competence training, at young ages, as the missing link in bullying prevention.
