The Raising a “Cool Kind Kid” Bullying Prevention Tips book should be read by every adult with a kid.  It offers great advice on how parents can easily teach proper manners and how they can instill pride in their actions and in their own personal appearance, especially their hygiene.  One of our favorite parts is that the book explains how these lessons can be taught during everyday life.  No special classes or time needed.  There are activities designed to make everyday tasks such as brushing your teeth, fun.  We highly recommend this book.

The Handbook – Book 1, Be a Cool Kind Kid features a number of exercises and activities designed to develop the social skills kids need to keep from becoming a victim of bullying.  Some of the activities require music from Tanner Manner’s Cool Kind Kid CD which is also available for download on their website.

Tanner Manner’s Cool Kind Kid CD is a collection of fun and active songs with lyrics that cleverly emphasis the messages that are a part of the Cool Kind Kid collection.  The instrumentals are pretty good so parents won’t mind listening to it with their kids.  The lyrics are well written but most importantly are clear and easy to understand and to sing along with.

The Bullying Prevention Parent/Child Resource Kit is a great value which includes all of the material listed above plus wrist bands, bookmarks, lyrics to all the songs on the CD, and the Magic Words laminated chart, all in a reusable plastic pouch.
