Apparently Oprah's trying to combat bullying in our nation's school, so she's holding a contest to see who can come up with the best method of conteracting bullying.

The Gracies have come up with a system called "Bullyproof" (think "Gracie Combatives for Kids"). I actually just "acquired" this series over the weekend & am very impressed. It's designed for kids ages 4-14, and it focuses on teaching the kids self-confidence & self-discipline. It also has a lot of info for the parents about what they need to be doing to help the kids.

Anyhow, the Gracies (more specificaly, Rener) have thrown their hats into the ring to try & win this competition on Oprah's website. Now click on the link & vote for BJJ!!! :happydancing:

One side note: Rener says at one point that "The Gracie family has been drug free for 3 generations." I guess Royce's steroids were all-natural? :laugh:

Don't teach kids the saying "Stick and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me" ... names/words can hurt people and is far more damaging than physical threats or violence ... wounds will heal, sometimes name calling doesn't ... look at all the suicides of kids that are bullied ... most happen when they are constantly teased ... teaching kids respect for one another and i don't know but also teaching kids resiliency is the way to go imo ...

I'll look into that, too. I mean, if I can do that on 4 computers instead of just one.... :frantics:
