Parents Have An IMPORTANT Role In Preventing Bullying

PARENTS HAVE AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN PREVENTING BULLYING.

StopBullying.Gov is a very informative web site with excellent resource information about every aspect of bullying.  We highly recommend visiting the site. 

Parents play a key role in preventing and responding to bullying. If you know or suspect that your child is involved in bullying,  there are several resources that may help.  Being aware and understanding of how various aspects of the activity manifest is an important first step.  Whether the child is being a bully, is being bullied, or watches from the sidelines as others are bullied, your child is affected.

Understand the Effects of Bullying

Bullying is linked to many negative outcomes including impacts on mental health, substance use, and suicide. It is important to talk to kids to determine whether bullying—or something else—is a concern.

Learn the signs and symptoms of bullying and its insidious and damaging effects.

Contrary to popular beliefs in some communities, bullying is NOT harmless childhood fun or pranks; it takes a mental and physical toll that might persists for decades. See: http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2014/04/19/304528674/mental-and-phy...

Also: http://www.psychologicalscience.org/index.php/news/releases/far-fro...

A new study shows that serious illness, struggling to hold down a regular job, and poor social relationships are just some of the adverse outcomes in adulthood faced by those exposed to bullying in childhood.

Parents play a key role: Visit the various links (at the end of this blog) to get helpful resources about preventing bullying. 

Educators play an important role:  Schools are a primary place where bullying can happen. There are many tools on this website specific for teachers, administrators, and other school staff:  http://www.stopbullying.gov/what-you-can-do/index.html 

The Community has an important role in preventing bullying:  Whether you work in law enforcement, mental health services, community or youth organizations, or any other role that works with children, there are resources to help you take action against bullying.

Teens Have A Role: Bullying stops us from being who we want to be, and prevents us from expressing ourselves freely, and might even make us feel unsafe. If you are bullied, say something! If you are bullying, it’s not cool!

Younger Children Should Know: Bullying is being mean to another kid over and over again. There are things you can do to keep yourself and the kids you know safe from bullying. It is very important to talk to your parents, teachers or a trusted adult.
