Let’s talk about bullying

October is National Bullying Prevention Month and that means it’s time to let everyone know why you care about bullying prevention.

By now school is in full swing. Students are busy learning math and reading, and making new friends. But unfortunately some students will experience some level of bullying.

Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance.

The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems.

Here are some tips to help you talk to your children about bullying:

  • Help kids understand different forms of bullying.
    Communicate– Check in with kids often– listen. Ask about friends, school, and concerns.
  • Encourage children to do what they love- such as hobbies or sports. These can boost self-esteem and help kids make friends.
  • Model how to treat others with kindness and respect.

Contact or visit the Family Learning Center closest to you for more information about preventing bullying or attend our “ Proud to Be Bully– Free” class this month.
