How To Teach Kids To Respect Themselves And Their Peers And Prevent Bullying Through Massage

Mumsgather Finds aims to bring you expert advice from service providers featured on our site. Today's advice is on How To Teach Kids To Respect Themselves And Their Peers And Prevent Bullying Through Massage. Through Massage? But how do you do that? That was the first thought when I first found out about this programme from our expert service provider Jashpreet Kaur. 

Jashpreet is the founder of Baby Massage With Love. She is also a Massage In Schools Programme (MISP) Instructor. Just what exactly is MISP?

According to Jashpreet, the MISP aims to teach kids to respect themselves and their peers and prevent bullying through massage. It is a worldwide and internationally recognized certified programme for teachers and parents. Now it is available in Malaysia.

Kids are taught to massage and through it learn:
  • What is healthy and what may be unhealthy touching
  • Learn to say "No" when they don't feel like being touched
  • Learn to ask a friend for permission even if they would like to hold their friends hands in the canteen, playground or anywhere else
  • Learn to respect someone who says "No"
  • Learn to express gratitude and say thanks to their peers
Massage demonstrates the power of positive touch rather than pushing and shoving around. In these days when children spend a lot of time in schools, it is important to teach them the right ways to interact. It is important for kids to learn to respect themselves and others and in that manner reduce bullying in schools.
