The U.S. Government’s website against bullying provides no sound solution for a child who is targeted by a persistent bully, and the string of highly publicized youth suicides is evidence that the schools cannot be entrusted with the a child’s direct safety against bullying. The classes taught in Dione’s academy to children adhere directly to the 85-year Gracie Family history, where is Gracie’s have successfully bully-proofed tens of thousands of children. The system empowers children with verbal strategies to stand up to bullying behavior with unshakable confidence and provides a series of non-violent self-defense techniques to keep them safe if they are physically attacked. The Gracie Bullyproof program has been featured on on NBC, CNN, and Oprah.com as an effective counter-measure to bullying. The program is engaging, fun, and will ensure that your son or daughter does not have to go through life being tormented.
