Bully Awareness

Bullying can affect you in many ways. You may lose sleep or feel sick. You may want to skip school. You may even be thinking about suicide. If you are feeling hopeless or helpless or know someone that is, please call the LIFELINE at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

 

The U.S. Departments of Education and Health and Human Services has a great website with many resources on bullying. Visit www.StopBullying.gov.

 

Parents Can Help Prevent Bullying - You don't want your child to be bullied ... or be a bully.

These tips can help:

  • Build your child's self-respect. Teach him that he is strong and worthwhile. His rights and opinion counts.
  • Identify supportive people. Tell your child where to get help, such as from parents, teachers, or other trusted adults.
  • Role-play tough situations. Practice using different ways to deal with bullies -- discussion, jokes, ignoring, and leaving.
  • Encourage friendships. Give your child opportunities to socialize with like-minded kids. Joining a club or team may help.
  • Stay involved. Know what's happening at school and with friends.

 

How to prevent bullying behavior:

  • Set an example. Be caring and nonaggressive. When angry, act calm.
  • Pay attention. Notice how your child behaves. Address problems immediately.
  • Provide outlets. Channel high energy into sports and other activities.
  • Monitor influences. Don't let your child see violence on TV or elsewhere.
  • Discipline well. Enforce sensible limits without fail.
  • Encourage values. Say "Treat others as you want to be treated."
  • Seek advice. If you're worried that your child might bully, talk with a professional.
