The Bullying Dilema for Children in Arizona’s Schools

March 10, 2011

Children Feeling Trapped In The Rules

o Dad says hit him and teach the bully a lesson

o Mom says just walk away from bullies

o Teacher says tell on the bully

o School says zero tolerance for fighting means you get suspended

So it’s no wonder why children are telling me that they are confused. The unintended consequence? They get abused to avoid the other consequences of getting in trouble with Mom, the school, the teacher or disappointing Dad for looking weak. They would rather take the torment than deal with the shame or pain of the alternatives.

To cut through the bullying dilema The Arizona Bullying Intervention Initiative – AZ Children’s Bully Prevention Project is working with Nottingham Sword and Shield Security and USA Martial Arts Phoenix to offer a series of bullying solutions – Victim / Bully Proof Workshops. Free Bully Prevention “5 Step How to Handle a Bully Without Fighting” training is being sponsored FREE to all Arizona Children.

ATTENTION: PARENTS, (teachers/leaders),

Discover The Secrets To Stopping The School or Playground Bully From Stealing Your Child’s Confidence and Self-Esteem Forever

These days you will find there is a lot of advice on how to handle a bully. Unfortunately, much of it is unqualified advice from people who have little, or worse, NO EXPERIENCE in successfully managing bullying behavior.

o Many of the “academics” offering bully programs were bullied themselves – and give kids impractical advice that can lead to your child getting beat up! (You may recognize the signs of these guys through their pushing infective and potentially dangerous policies like the politically motivated “zero tolerance”.)

o Some teachers tend to over-talk it and were themselves targets of bullying and STILL lack the practical skills of protection. It simply lacks common sense and usually won’t work in the real world.

o Other advocates are well intentioned parents of bullied children now advocating the demonizing of the bully (who is somebodies child) ie “Anti-Bully training” . Newsflash…Bullying is a BEHAVIOR – NOT A PERSON. Did you know that most children who are targets of bullying often become bullies? It could be your child. That’s why bully solutions requires a more responsible, intelligent and practical approach.

FACT: A parent or teacher simply can’t be there to protect a child every second of their lives.

The John Nottingham 5 Step Bully Management Method teaches common sense before self defense and how to defeat a bully without fighting or violence. Using humor and verbal judo “word blocks” kids learn the warning signs and how to thwart bullying behavior. They often learn to turn Bullies Into Buddies! But if push comes to shove, children need to know that nobody has the right to hurt them and we give them responsible and clever tools to protect themselves with appropriate force and escaping with dignity. They won’t teach you that in other programs.

The Ugly Truth Nobody Is Telling You, The Parent

Did you know that children report that they are being beaten, tormented, abused and harassed by bullies and it continues day after day because they are afraid THEY will get into trouble or suspended?

o Children are told by the bully that if they tell, they will get beat up.

o Kids are told by teachers and administrations that they will get in trouble if they are in a “fight”.

o Children are often ashamed to tell parents or friends because it is embarrassing, makes them feel weaker or it causes such a fuss. Remember what it felt like to be a kid?

FACT: Bullying is one of the leading causes of absenteeism and harms scholastic performance

Where do children turn in this crazy system that lacks common sense?? We have the answers.

The truth is that most of the Anti-Bully programs out there are just parroting the popular bully information but have no real life experience implementing successful bully behavior management programs. While they are usually well intentioned – they are, in our experience, giving inaccurate and potentially dangerous advice that is NOT in the best interest of your child. Parents need an intelligent alternative “peacemaker” approach – NOT being a bigger bully or a push over pansy like so many armchair quarterbacks advocate.

Fact: Did you know that most of the BULLY EDUCATION programs out there are designed around limiting schools, administrators and institutions liability rather than protecting the safety and self esteem of your child?

How is my program different?
I’m so glad you asked. It starts with my background. My name is John Nottingham and I’ve been teaching people for over 23 years how to effectively protect themselves in the real world. From training the military for combat, law enforcement for the street, bodyguards protecting celebrities to thousands of children successfully managing bullies, I have taught a great number of people in my chain of USA Martial Arts schools, community talks as a public speaker, and owner of a bodyguard security training company. It has been my lifelong professional obsession and it has taken me all over the world to learn what I can share with you.

Our Bully Solutions Program is made to work in the real world. Like it or not, bullies exist in the playground, at schools and in the workplace so we have to equip children with skills to deal with bulies. Ignoring bullies or denying bullying only causes it to escalate and get worse. Now parents have proven effective bully solutions.

A Little Background and Personal Experience & Why You Should Here What I Have To Say About Bullying
I was the target of bullying when I was in school (as well as several other stages of my life). I know the pain and lasting trauma it can cause. Fortunately, I got involved in Martial Arts at an early age and it changed my life forever. The life lessons I learned there not only helped me COMPLETELY DEFEAT MY BULLIES WITHOUT FIGHTING, but gave me the tools to become an Eagle Scout and overcome asthma (you can read about it in a Taekwondo Times Magazine article here).

“Wax On Wax Off?” -Mr. Miyagi, The Karate Kid movie
I know what your thinking… 98lb weakling joins martial arts, becomes black belt and learns to beat up bully – but thats not what happend at all (this is real life-not the movies). I learned to handle my bully long before I earned Black Belt – you’ll see that my bully solution techniques can be put to use the very first day (and has been by thousands of children just like yours). You see, it’s not about the kicks, punches and blocks – it is a systematic method developed for responsibly handling bully behavior -usually without ever getting physical.

It’s True- No Bull – Read on…
I went from having average to poor grades as a child to earning academic honors. But it didn’t stop there as I went on to serve in an Army Airborne Special Forces Unit in a support detachment and graduate the US Army Intelligence School. I earned numerous Black Belts and Instructorships in 4 styles and had a 6th Degree Master Black Belt rank bestowed on me. We even have a foundation for prevention and treatment of child abuse, public awareness and education.

You Won’t Find Anyone Else With That Unique Background and Set of Skills Teaching How To Deal With Bullies
I don’t say those things to impress you with my credentials. I share it to impress upon you that this program really is different and it really works due to the very unique experience and education I have had in my life.

Why Our STOP BULLYING Training Works Like Magic
I learned how to incorporate the wisdom of martial arts peace process, the strategy used by military intelligence (and the lessons history teaches on the subject), then I trained in bodyguard schools, then worked with school teachers, psychologists and some of the greatest minds in the world on the subject (one such mind is my teacher Gavin de Becker – I recommend you read his best selling book The Gift of Fear). Gavin de Becker is a three time Presidential appointee and one of the greatest minds on situations that could lead to violence. Our Bully Stop system teaches step by step, easy to learn pre-contact, contact and post contact techniques.

“John Nottingham’s Defeating the Bully Without Fighting Works Like Magic and the children loved the training.” – Kathy Lester, Teacher

My experience afforded me a unique opportunity to bring together some amazingly effective tools and skills to handle conflict in different ways. The result is a 3 pronged treatment 5 step process for DEFEATING A BULLY WITHOUT FIGHTING and, in general, a CONFLICT AVOIDANCE method that works like magic. (You won’t see these same methods in other programs, unless they got them from us.)

A dirty little secret about bullies…
Nearly all bully situations can be prevented, thwarted and diffused if your child knows what early warning signs to look for and what to do at the right time. However, not all bully situations can be stopped before they get physically abusive. We train children for that too. You won’t hear that in most bully training programs!

Can We Really Teach You or Your Child How To Quickly and Effectively Deal With Bullies?
Yes we can, just as we have thousands of children just like yours. But wait… just because I have great ideas and bully avoidance program that works doesn’t necessarily mean I can teach it. That’s where my experience as an educator comes in. I’ve been teaching martial arts since I was a teenager, was paid to brief Officers and high ranking brass in the military, and my staff and I have taught over 10,000 men, women and children. My hand-picked team and I have the ability to articulate our Bully Solution message in a way that makes it non-intimidating, rewarding, and fun.

We hope to work with you and share our experience in how to resolve conflict peacefully and defeat a bully without fighting.

Respectfully,

Got a Bully? We Can Help

Got a Bully? We Can Help

Does another kid kick, hit, pinch, punch, trip or threaten you? If so, you may have a bully.

Does someone tease you, call you names, leave you out, or spread rumors about you? You may have a bully. But you can stand up to bullies if you know what to do.

* Try to talk it out. Say, “Why are you being mean to me?”
* Get away and stay away from the bully.
* Speak up. Say, “Stop picking on me!” and do it with confidence and eye contact.
* Make a joke. If you say something funny, even about yourself, the bully might laugh and forget to pick on you.
* Stick with your friends.
* Ask an adult for help.

Do you know someone who has a bully? Well, you can help. Did you know that most of the time when a kid steps in bullying stops? Here are some things you can do.

– If you see someone being picked on, be a friend and walk away from the bully together.
– If you have a friend who bullies, take a stand and tell your friend to stop.
– If you know someone that gets picked on, ask the kid to play with you.
– Get your friends to come with you when you help someone being bullied.

If someone is hurting a kid, tell an adult.
