Monday 15th July – Tips on tackling bullying, lifestyle advice & more

“Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.” We’ve all heard this children’s rhyme which aims to persuade a victim of name-calling to ignore the taunt, to refrain from physical retaliation, and to remain calm. However the reality is that words do hurt and unfortunately, often times, there are also sticks and stones (i.e. violence) involved. So on this show we are tackling bullying and how to best deal with it as individuals being bullied, and as parents of the bullied.

Chrissy speaks to two young survivors – Phoebe Cheung bullied for being adopted and Rachel Mitchell bullied because of her faith. And joining them is Leanne Arnold who will be telling us about Student Life’s Speak Up, Speak Out video which aims to encourage people not to keep bullying to themselves.

Dr Audrey Tang talks about how bullying affects a person mentally and what they can do about it and Natalia Kotowska shows this week’s dynamic workout.

Family coach Sharon Lawton gives some tips on how parents can deal with bullying.

And if you’ve experienced bullying it can make the world seem like a very unfriendly place which is why it’s so important to associate yourself with positive people. So we show you a great activity called Festibowl that some of the Chrissy B Show family took part in, great for teambuilding but lots of fun too.

We also welcome back Nutritionist Hannah Richards making something nutritious and delicious and Dr Rob Hicks answers your holiday-related questions today, including one about what to do if you’re a nervous flyer.
