pulling out one strand, one problem and one perspective at a time…


No child should feel alone or diminished.

Bullying is messy and complicated. In other words, a Tangled Ball. And although there’s no “one size fits all” solution, there are many ways we can help. Tangled Ball is about untangling one string at a time.

After several years of working with experts and schools, I’ve come to the conclusion that “Leadership is the Anti-Bully.” It’s bigger than “bullying.” It’s about inspiring children from young ages to be their best selves.

There are four strings in the Tangled Ball that deserve our attention:

  • Early Prevention
  • Parenting
  • The Parent/School Relationship
  • Promoting Leadership and Raising Upstanders

The mission of Tangled Ball is to help promote the best messages and the most effective tools to the people who need it the most: everyone.

The more we know about bullying and cyber bullying, the more we realize that it’s so much more than stereotypical Jock-Or-Nerd social strife. It’s about self awareness, empathy, empowerment, education, communication, parent involvement, school climate, and developing skills.

There are multiple factors involved and it starts young. The goal of Tangled Ball is to help experts, non-profits, schools, media outlets and all interested stakeholders untangle one string at a time. Children should not be afraid to go to school or go online. Tangled Ball can help.
