This latest volume, which is scheduled for release in October, will include contributions from Hawk and other experts in various industries that address the growing problem of bullying.
“Our society is facing greater, more intense, and more pervasive bullying than ever before,” says Hawk. “While technology is wonderful in so many ways, gone are the days of children being able to go home and trust that they are safe or hope that people will forget over time. Bullying now has the ability to reach out anywhere, any time, and keep coming back! Through this chapter, I am delighted to aid in the movement to help children and families bully-proof their lives!”
BULLYPROOF: Unleash the Hero Inside Your Kid, is a project started by Alex Changho, a martial arts professional and business coach.
“There are many programs out that are meant to help parents and kids deal with bullying,” says Changho. “But so many of them are designed to ‘keep the peace’ or ‘reduce conflict at schools’ instead of actually addressing the real problem. The problem is not bullying in itself. The problem is the negative effects that bullying has on kids. The solution is to bullyproof the individual, by empowering more people, and helping them feel great about themselves. When inevitably the bullying happens, it will be ineffective.”
Hawk’s involvement in the BULLYPROOF project will bring an effective, working solution to the families of Mount Pleasant. Along with the release of the book, Hawk will hold free workshops, resources, and training for the community.
