Havan is partnering with Me Books Asia to launch a Prevent-Bullying Campaign with the aims of building awareness and spreading positive movement to parents and educators in our community.
Most bullying prevention programs depend fully on and employ the general acceptable disciplinary style. They vehemently oppose bullying and encourage students to stand up and speak for themselves or to defend themselves. Oftentimes, the focus is on educating the victims to be strong and speak up, little attention is given to the bullies. Therefore, we need to find new ways to prevent or stop bullying through a holistic approach that brings everyone together.
We believe that empowerment is the positive way to tackle bullying issues among children. Children regardless of bullies and victims deserve to feel powerful and resourceful in times of difficulties. They should be given trust and confidence that they are capable of making good choices.
How do we do that?

Prevent Bullying with Education
“Even Superheroes Have Bad Day”
Firstly, children need to recognise that we all are superheroes possess with unique superpower. A true superhero is capable of making wise choices in difficult time without hurting oneself and others.
Secondly, even superheroes have bad day! Children are taught that going through unpleasant emotions such as anger and despair are completely acceptable. One having a bad day and being grumpy is absolutely fine. However, the behaviours followed by the emotions are not always acceptable especially when it hurts others.
Finally, the book shows us a great way to help ourselves when we are having a bad day by practicing “taking a break and dig down to our super-best part” as we wait for our super-emotions to wane.
