Journey To Success Radio Interview with Trent Lissa
Journey To Success Radio host Tracy Montgomery had the pleasure of interviewing Trent Lissa, the owner of Odyssey Martial Arts Alberta. They spoke about bullying, anti bullying strategies and the impact bullying has on society.
Because of my arthritis and my shortness, which was caused by the prednisone I took for the arthritis, I got bullied a lot when I was young. I got locked in a locker and I was also teased a lot. I hate to admit though that I did join in when other kids picked on immigrants. I have since learned that kids will tease each other and being resilient is one of the best things you can train in your kids.
