Hey parents, do you have a child who hits out or bites other children and thinks it is fun?
Does your kid constantly snatch from other kids, and no matter how many times you have told him or her off, the misconduct continues? Or perhaps you have a child who is on the receiving end of these misbehaviours? How do you handle the kids or the situation?
When my kids were still in pre-school age, I had a parent who told me that it was better for his child to be the bully than be bullied. His daughter was four at that time!!
Every kid that I know (and adult for that matter) has experienced some degree of harassment or bullying. The bossier kids tend to lord over the more agreeable kids. Harmless jibes can easily escalate to demoralizing teasing for the one being teased. How we handle the situation and stand up to the perpetrator or bully makes all the difference between a positive or negative outcome.
I have been fortunate that my kids have not experienced any overt bullying, but I feel that it is so important to set the right tone for our children on this subject. So, it is my great pleasure to share with you about Paper Monkey‘s first English mini puppetry musical — The Big Bully.
This fun and creative musical adventure uses daily household items to engage the kids and their parents about this sensitive but essential topic. The play is suitable for children below eight (8) years old and parental guidance is necessary.
Parents can also learn how to transform recycled materials at home to props that can be used to share meaningful stories with their children.
Hungry Brush is a Big Bully. He is always hungry and bullying kids by snatching their food away without asking politely. One day, Pan and Sponge decided to go picnic and met Hungry Brush on the bridge that they were crossing. The Big Bully, Hungry Brush, extorted money from Pan and Sponge before letting them crossed the bridge. Pan and Sponge decided to stand up for themselves and defy Hungry Brush’s order. Will Pan and Sponge succeed? Is Hungry Brush going to learn his lesson and stop being a Big Bully?
