Need advice/resources to teach 8 yo to stand up to bullies

Recommended Posts


I need some resources that will help me teach my 8 yo to stand up to bullies and NOT SIDE with bullies (implicitly or explicitly) when they are picking on someone else--how to step back from a situation and find the voice to say "that's not okay" even if it means facing embarrassment or the loss of a "so-called" friend.


Most of the resources I am finding are for children who are the victims of bullying. But I am looking for something that will help my son learn not to befriend bullies (ie. side with them and in essence become a bully himself), make better choices (ie. not every kid out there is necessarily your friend) and how to stand up to them, even if that just means saying "Hey! Why don't we go play ping pong instead?"
