This latest volume, which is scheduled for release in October, will include contributions from Daughtry and other experts in various industries that address the growing problem of bullying.
“Bullying is a serious and ongoing problem facing our youth,” says Daughtry. “While the causes and catalysts may differ from generation to generation, there are real and universal solutions. This chapter is my way of inspiring hope in youth and families, and encouraging a path to success that each child can achieve when they know how to take action.”
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.”
Daughtry’s involvement in the BULLYPROOF project will bring an effective, working solution to the families of Richmond Hill. Along with the release of the book, Daughtry will hold free workshops, resources, and training for the community.
