WHAT IS PEER PRESSURE?
Pictured above is a hilarious game we play with students to show them that peer pressure is like the blind feeding the blind!
Lisa Freeman was a victim of peer pressure. She was both bullied and the bully. Her children were victims of Middle School Bullying. She understands why bullies bully and knows what to do about bullying. She is a natural with this delicate age of tweens and teens. She is able to get right on their level, give them the boost they need, and help them excel in every area. She knows from experience how easily they are pressured into doing things they would never otherwise consider. Using a mix of personal stories, her furry friends, and interactive games, she educates on the importance of acceptance, focusing on likenesses instead of differences, and helping this group of teens see how choices both bad and good can effect their future. Tweens and teens learn by interaction and playing fun, safe in school games.

MIDDLE SCHOOL BULLYING SPEAKER BRINGS CHANGE
Lisa Freeman empowers all students to CHANGE with her motivational message about her son, Brian, who although he was bullied all his life for being different, he didn't hate his bullies, but rather forgave his bullies, and wanted to help them. According to recent surveys taken after Abuse Bites workshops, 89% of all students decided to have a change of heart like Brian and be more proactive about bullying/abuse and other critical life issues. PAWS is: "Pause before you Act Without Speaking." Paws teaches teens to put a paw over their mouth and think before speaking/acting so they won't hurt others. Yet, when someone needs help,to use those PAWS to ACT quickly and do something to help, don't sit by and allow bullying or abuse to keep happening.
STUDENTS ARE CHANGED!
"I really enjoyed the anti-bullying presentation! I thought it was great! It was a lot of fun and it spoke to me. My classmates really liked the activities too. They talked about it the whole 6th hour period! Thank you so much for coming."
~Meghan, Chesaning Middle School, 8th grade
"What you said really got me thinking. Joking with others can be bullying too. I never really looked at it that way."
-7th grade guy, Hillman Junior High
