1350 McLean Blvd., Eugene

November 5, 2012—Eugene, Ore. — While schools can do a lot to work through situations of teasing, parents can be very effective in giving their children some age appropriate simple strategies to avoid being caught up in the destructive cycle of teasing and bullying.

This is a talk and workshop that focuses on bullying, teasing and exclusion. A very doable solution will be offered, that is tried and proven with countless families over the last 25 years. What is different about this approach, and some say unique, is that practical tools are given to family helpers and families, that can be implemented right away that break the cycle of bullying and teasing.
