Tired Of Being A Bully & #BullyNoMore Twitter Party

Have you ever had your son or daughter come to you for help because they are being bullied? Do they even know that the way they are being treated is in fact bullying?

As parents we need to be able to talk to our kids about bullying & how to handle it. The book Tired of Being a Bully is more then a book about dogs. It’s a story about Lucky, a junkyard dog, who isn’t quite the nicest animal on the block. In the book, Lucky learns that being mean to other dogs doesn’t gain him friends.

I was able to read the book not only to my children but also to my oldest daughter’s class & my youngest son’s teacher read it to their class.

It was awesome talking with my daughter’s class after we read the book. We talked about what they thought about the book, how it helped them & about when they were bullied.

I asked them to raise their hand if they had ever been bullied, the entire class raised their hand. It’s astonishing to me that so many kids have suffered & been mistreated. I was so amazed to hear how well they handled it though when it did happen.

One student said “if I was bullied, I would tell them to stop. In a very firm voice, and I would keep telling them until they stopped”. Another student said “if I was bullied again I would ask them why they were bullying me & try to work it out before telling an adult”.

I am so honored to be a part of the #BullyNoMore campaign with some awesome bloggers, the author of Tired Of Being A Bully Dicy McCullough & someone I really look up to Dr. G {Deborah Gilboa, MD}.

I hope you will be able to join us for the #BullyNoMore twitter party n April 2, 2013 at 9:30 PM EST. We are going to have a Twitter party to celebrate Dicy’s new book and to discuss this ever-rising issue of bullying.

Omron Pedometer & Book Giveaway

Weather you are just starting out on your weight loss journey or are well on your way, tracking your steps & having a goal can really help. Before I became a Mamavation Mom I never knew that my daily goal should be 10,000 steps a day. I didn’t know how many steps I did take, and I didn’t realize that increasing my step count would make a big difference in my weight loss.

Watching what you eat also plays a big part in weight loss. When I think of a diet I think of eating food that has no taste & feels like I am suppose to enjoy eating cardboard tasting food. If you are looking to shed some pounds while eating some amazing tasting food you won’t want to miss this book!

Prizes: One winner will win a Omron HJ-112 pedometer & One winner will win a copy of “Slimmer: The New Mediterranean Way to Loose Weight” by Harry Papas.
