Bullying Campaign


What is bullying or more to the point what is a bully.

The Oxford dictionary defines bully (noun) as a person who uses strength or influence to harm those who are weaker, and bullying (verb) to use superior strength or influence to intimidate [someone] typically to force them to do something.

Mainly it involves the bully’s perception of other people. Bullies are threatened by differences in others, which they are unable or unwilling to accept. These can be racial in nature, religious, physical disabilities or just because someone looks/dresses /sound different from them. It can even go as far as bullying because of the people or organisations you are associated with

The bullying cycle nearly always starts small but if left unchecked will almost certainly escalate into more serve and brutal occurrences.

As we’ve stated previously bullying is almost always about power and control the use of physical or emotional harassment or physical assault to humiliate someone that they [the bully] perceive as different or weak.

For bullying to be successful, there must be a believed physical outcome.  (You will be ‘beaten up’ – secrets may be threatened to be exposed - someone you love may be threatened ...etc...).

Mostly bullying is caused by a lack of confidence, brought about by fear.

Those with little or no confidence or low self esteem are often the subject of bullying.

So begins a vicious circle:

I am being bullied.

I need to be confident (or show confidence), but I’m afraid.

Therefore I show in my body language, responses and actions that I lack confidence.

So I am bullied (possibly even more) and the cycle continues to spiral.

Confidence is everything.

How do you do that? By giving your kids the knowledge and skills to be self assured. Confident in their own abilities.

PassivePOWER can offer a solution, we have written 2 books that deal directly with the problem.

In book 1[Secrets for Stopping Bullying for Kids {Secret Signs}] we deal with Awareness what personal traits are common with victims of bullying and suggests ways to change them as well as environmental awareness what to look out for and avoid if possible, what steps to take to help minimise risk and Verbal Conflict Management.

In book 2 [Secrets for Stopping Bullying for Kids {Secret Solutions}] we shows a range of practical measures to control aggressive behaviour, through non violent passive means using over a hundred and fifty photos with step by step written instructions.

The key message throughout both of these books is confidence when you are confident in your own ability everything changes.
