Excerpt from "Bully Solution"
Super Hero Within
You were ‘born that way’... whatever your strengths and specialness is... it’s yours to cherish, to develop, and to share with the world. In moments of doubt, when needing to muster courage, to brave the storm of taunts, and misunderstanding. - Either you face a fear or run from it. In “Peace Smarts” we ‘Morph It’ and transform fear into constructive energy. Clarity emerges, you won’t be so lost or stuck, trying to be someone you aren’t, trying to fit in, or to please someone else.

How To Cope With A Disaster

Many people are experiencing powerful feelings related to the tragedies that occur daily. There are healthy and unhealthy ways to express emotions. Children are especially vulnerable to a powerful display of emotion from adults and the chaotic atmosphere that can create. Therefore, adults can help children by remaining calm and attentive when children are present. While it is important to try and keep the daily routine as normal as possible, there may also be the need for added comfort during this extraordinary time of stress.
Adults can comfort children by:
This point of view promotes feelings of gratitude in the child for what they have and motivation to help others less fortunate. Community service involvement is a great way to transform your feelings into positive actions. People of all ages can take part in volunteer activities. Even very young children can participate in a beautification project at their school, such as planting a garden.
Practice 'What It Means' To Be A Friend
Give compliments... that you feel are true. “You are a great ball player.” “Could you show me how you pitch that ball so good?” Accept a compliment - know you are worthy.
Be respectful and kind. Go out of your way to help someone, maybe you are the one who can help with a math problem.
Lend a listening ear. Show you care, have empathy for someone who is left out, having family problems.
Don’t hold on to the small stuff. Let irritations roll off your back. You know how people that are always complaining are not fun to be around. Choose to stay on the task at hand and ignore what isn’t your business.
Focus on what is going right, rather than on what is going wrong. Choose to share the positive, and watch how people respond to you. You can uplift energy, and feel good.
Accept others as they are. You can’t change them. Be less critical; enjoy the finer traits someone has. Build people up. Dwell on your good points, live them, uplift yourself and others.
