There is more to the technique of how to get bullies to stop than just ignore them and they will go away. Lots more.  What you don’t know and what isn’t being taught is causing us to fail. This program is designed to help you understand what exactly has to happen to get a bully to stop by sharing what all science tells us needs to happen to stop unwanted behavior, like bullying.
