Internationally known speaker Jeff Veley, presented to parents and staff members on how to Effectively Equip Youth to End Bullying.  Mr. Veley identified eight forms of bullying.  He explored reasons why most anti-bullying programs fail and discussed how to teach youth the social skills to stop bullying behavior, empowering them to be their best advocate.  After teaching the audience these skills, he called upon a youth in attendance, John Wever, to role play.  Two scenarios were played out:  John was the bully in both scenes. During the first scene,

Jeff (the victim) responded to the bullying by defending himself and arguing back.  The arguing escalated and continued.  During the second scenario, Jeff demonstrated the skills he had taught the audience and John clearly had a more difficult time continuing to act like a bully.  John stated “you were being all nice, and it was hard to keep being mean”.  Post evaluations indicate this was a very successful parent night and attendees would love to see Jeff Veley present to our students.  We are on it!
