The 8-12 age range marks a critical window of time in the social and emotional development of kids, one in which adults are still highly influential. The 8 Keys to End Bullying Activity Book Companion Guide for Parents & Educators, enhances the role of parents and educators in helping young people navigate challenging social dynamics and overcome bullying. As a "leader's manual" for The 8 Keys to End Bullying Activity Book for Kids & Tweens, it provides helpful guidelines and vital background information for leading kids and students through each of the activities and lessons. Organized around the groundbreaking principles of 8 Keys to End Bullying, the two-book 8 Keys to End Bullying Activity Program for Kids & Tweens builds key social-emotional skills in readers ages 8-12, empowering them to cope with conflict and end bullying in their communities and schools. Younger kids can complete the activities with a parent or teacher's guidance, while older kids can complete the activities independently.These simple activities cultivate (1) assertiveness, emotion management, and friendship skills in kids vulnerable to bullying, (2) problem-solving skills for kids who witness bullying, and (3) empathy and kindness skills in kids who are likely to bully their peers. Books are available individually or as a set.
The activities are fun to do and I couldn't wait to see what was coming next. After I completed the 8 Keys I really wanted to get rid of bullying at my school. I learned what bullying is and things I can do to stop it.--Ashlyn, age 11
