In today’s world, aggression seems to be at an all-time high. It seems like everyone is offended by practically everything. In order to fit in, you got to be woke and speak your truth and shout down anyone who opposes you. However, this strategy doesn’t work in any kind of human relationship or any kind of real-world situation. If your a parent, raising kids in this kind of environment is daunting. The solution is to raise your kids to be emotionally resilient.

Today on Educate For Life, Kevin’s guest is Brooks Gibbs. Brooks Gibbs is an award-winning social skills educator. He is a popular youth speaker who’s presented 2,500 speeches. His viral videos have been translated into 20 languages and amassed more than 200 million views. He specializes in teaching youth how to be emotionally resilient and inspires them to live by the Golden Rule.

Brooks teaches students two basic principles:

• Don’t get upset (Emotional Resilience)

• Treat them like a friend (The Golden Rule)

Most youth aggression is non-criminal and consists of name-calling, social exclusion, rumors, etc. These behaviors are inevitable between siblings at home and peers at school. Despite the pettiness of these behaviors, they can do tremendous emotional harm to a student. Brooks teaches students how to protect their emotions from the effects of these behaviors through emotional resilience.  He also communicates the genius of The Golden Rule. This social instruction teaches students how to make friends and also manage their perceived enemies. The Golden Rule takes advantage of the law of reciprocity, and as students learn to treat others as friends, this positive behavior becomes the social norm.
