This latest volume, which is scheduled for release in October, will include contributions from Carman and other experts in various industries that address the growing problem of bullying.
“Bullying can have serious harmful effects on kids. I believe we need to strengthen and empower families, teachers and principals to know how to help. This chapter seeks to equip our community so they can be part of the solution,” says Carman.
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.”
Carman’s involvement in the BULLYPROOF project will bring an effective, working solution to the families of Arlington. Along with the release of the book, Carman will hold free workshops, resources, and training for the community.
