WHAT IF… BULLYING SITUATION CARDSCompare
The “What if….” cards are intended to benefit children and youth aged 7-16. They can be used by schools, youth groups, counsellors, teachers, parents, caregivers, church groups, and more. These cards were designed for one on one use, as well as in small and large groups for brainstorming sessions and discussions, supervised by a teacher, parent, caregiver, counsellor or any positive mentoring groups. Students can explore, discuss and practice their “safe, non-violent bullying stopping plans” with different “what if…” situations and responses. Many rich conversations and teachable moments (back and forth) happen while working with these real life scenario cards. If students do not know what to do when faced with a bullying situation, they may surrender their power and self-esteem, or fight back with their words or fists. Some students may react in other inappropriate negative ways, possibly causing bullying situations to escalate. There are no guarantees, however, if youngsters have practiced and are prepared with a plan and increased social skills, they are more apt to keep their own power and deal with the bullying situations in a more socially acceptable, effective, safer and successful manner.
