  1. Another tool that can be used in schools in by reading the book Strike One! by Andrea Prostko, and then using the teacher curriculum that accompanies it. It is appropriate for grades 3-6 and is available on Amazon.com as both a hard copy and ebook. (Ebook is retailing for only $.99 – including the curriculum). It is changing lives!

We all know that bullying is a serious problem, and it’s hard to deal with that situation, especially when it’s your children because we want to protect them, and you don’t want to see them hurt. We do the best we can as parents but aren’t responsible for other’s actions. Your doing everything you can for your kids, and that’s all we can do.
