Bullying is something many families face. Adventures in Odyssey wants to come alongside parents to encourage and prepare children to respond well to bullying. Whether your child knows a bully, is being bullied, or is the bully, you’ll learn valuable lessons from these three episodes:
“Take It From The Top”: Matthew Parker is Vance King’s “Target of the Week”—which means certain humiliation at the hands of the bully! Matthew decides to take matters into his own hands by getting revenge on Vance during an Odyssey Coyotes baseball game.
“Another Man’s Shoes”: After stealing Brock Blakley’s shoes, Jared DeWhite gets a chance to experience life in his shoes by way of an invention of Whit’s.
“Mike Makes Right”: Billy Barton, the bully of Odyssey Elementary, gets into a fight with Mike Caldwell. When Mike wins, he becomes arrogant and lets stardom go to his head.
