In this discussion, our Director of Education, Jamie Utt, leads a Q & A session with philanthropist, retired professional athlete, and current University of Arizona Assistant basketball coach, Joseph Blair. Joseph is also a father of three, one of whom has struggled with bullying.
Joseph offers up his own wise advice for parents about the necessity of open communication with your children, and Jamie brings in some of the tried and true teachings from our UPstander Intervention Training to support the discussion.
In this CivilSchools Parent Dialogue, Jamie and Joseph will cover:
1. Reasons that open, honest communication with your child is vital to bullying prevention
2. How to build empathy in your child through critical conversation and modeling of empathetic behavior
3. How to teach your child to be an UPstander to prevent bullying
