Today’s paradigm is to criminalize bullying by making antibullying laws—but it’s not working. The bullying prevention program is very popular but not very effective because bullying is an inevitable part of life; moreover, no one thinks they’re a bully.
Doris Greenberg, MD, Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrician at the Mercer University School of Medicine and Associate Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at the Backus Children’s Hospital Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah, Georgia, and Israel (Izzie) Kalman, MS, nationally recognized School Psychologist and creator of the Golden Rule System, discuss a much simpler system that focuses on the children who are being bullied (the victims) rather than on the bullies. Using this technique, children are taught how not to be victims. Many free resources about this technique are available at: bullies2buddies.com. For manual downloads and resources, please click here.
