Watch for the Signs. Learn the Skills.


Parents are the number one influence in children’s lives—yes,

even during the teen years. As such, parents are in an ideal position to help prevent bullying, if they know about it. Unfortunately, many kids won’t talk about being bullied or bullying others.

Adding to the challenge, cyberbullying is increasingly common,

and the ways to deal with it are often different than "in-person" bullying. However, by staying involved in your child’s life, watching for changes in behavior, and learning the tips and tools to effectively communicate about bullying, you can help your child appropriately respond to being bullied or stop bullying others.
