It’s common for parents to feel powerless and frustrated when their kids are being bullied, but often parents don’t know it’s happening. Grandparents can play a special role in bullying prevention too, as they often share a special bond that is unique from other relationships children have with adults. They can encourage children to share problems that they might be embarrassed or ashamed to tell a parent or a teacher about. Get concrete answers and learn helpful strategies from Rabbi Dave Burstein to identify and support children who could be in a bullying situation, while Mike Simmons addresses some easy Krav Maga self defense skills that will boost a child’s confidence and, if necessary, help them get out of a bad situation.
