Bullies are a Pain in the Brain DVD
Every kid runs into bullies, and our hero Jack is no exception. After being picked on, pushed around, and threatened by Henry the Bully, Jack tries self-defense, insults, and even disguises to stop the bullying - but nothing's working. Finally, he comes up with a fail-safe solution - stay home from school forever! But, of course, Trevor and Jack's friend Skye aren't going to let him off so easily. From sketchbook to the schoolyard, Trevor teaches Jack ways to handle a bully and the secrets for becoming bully-proof. Using humor, original music, and a fast-paced storyline, Trevor Romain offers kids practical, easy-to-implement solutions for dealing with their own bully problems such as work on building their confidence, staying calm, giving bullies lots of space, telling an adult, and more! And Trevor also encourages kids not to believe myths about bullying such as getting bullied is normal, bullies are always boys, and the best way to handle bullies is to ignore them or fight back.
