FAST Bully Defense for Children
“Empowering kids in our community FAST”
160,000 children cut school every day in the United States to avoid a bully. This according to the National Education Association. A majority of the school shootings have been linked to cases of excessive bullying, according to the U.S. Secret Service. Studies have shown that adults who were bullied as children have a much higher level of depression and lower self-esteem than those who were not.
Our mission is to STOP this epidemic of bullying and prepare our children for life!!!…. THE PHOENIX WAY.
