This latest volume, which is scheduled for release October, will include contributions from Boquet and ten other experts in various industries that address the growing problem of bullying.
“Bullying has always been an issue, and it always will be,” explains Boquet. “That’s never going to change. We need to teach people how to deal with it and how to cope with a situation to the point that they are either able to get the bully away from them, or not be bothered by it.”
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.”
Boquet’s involvement in the BULLYPROOF project will bring an effective, working solution to the families of Draper. Along with the release of the book, Boquet will hold free workshops, resources, and training for the community.
