With the absurdity that is going on in the NFL, this could not be more timely. I am not going to jump on the pile when they are down but this has been building up for three decades and the chickens are finally coming home to roost. The “in your face,” taunting, spiking the ball, chest thumping, terrible sportsmanship, “hey world look at me, I am great,” who can dress and look the weirdest to draw attention to themselves mentality has manifested itself to reveal what we all saw coming.
The taunting is probably the worst. That is the pure act of being a bully. It has no place on the field or in life. I still love football but I will support every effort the league makes to clean it up. And…we can all do the same in our own lives and neighborhoods.

Be a BULLY to BULLYING
With the now weekly NFL horror stories rearing their ugly heads, this could not be more timely.
We all see the horror stories far too frequently where another child has taken their life due to the senseless and relentless bullying. We all know what bullying is but for those that want the technical definition…according to the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (CDC), “bullying is repeated verbal, physical, social or psychological aggressive behavior by a person or group directed towards a less powerful person or group that is intended to cause harm, distress or fear.”
30% of American youth are bullied. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Suicide is the third leading cause of death among our youth. Many of these attempts are bullying related. And this will shock you…for every 1 successful suicide, there are over 100 attempts. It has to STOP!
J. P. “Gus” Godsey has just released a children’s book “How Scooter Gets His Tail Back” through Morgan James Publishing www.Morgan-James.com. The story spins a riveting tail that delivers a strong anti-bullying message and details the consequences of reckless behavior. Our children’s return to school is right around the corner so the opportunity could not be timelier. Godsey is available for interviews to discuss the extent of the problems with bullying and the following:
* Tell-tail signs to identify if your child is being bullied.
* The negative results from bulling.
* What parents and adults can do when they see bullying is happening.
* Cyber-Bullying and social media bullying.
* Godsey shares his story of being physically bullying at 5 years home (in kindergarten).
* And much more.
Again, back to school is here. This is a topic that parents are eager to hear more about. Don’t miss out.
