How Parents and Youth Can Contribute to Bullying Prevention
Parents and youth are given opportunities to contribute their expertise. To sustain parent and youth involvement, schools provide meaningful roles for them.
For example, at ACW:
Students can contribute their views and experiences with bullying during guidance lessons. They can take leadership roles in school to promote respect and inclusion (Student Council), communicate about bullying prevention with their peers, and help develop rules and policies.
Parents can contribute to a positive school climate through the parent teacher organization (PTO), volunteering, and school improvement/family engagement events.
School staff keep parents informed, make them feel welcome, and treat them as partners.
Benefits of Parent and Youth Engagement
When parents and youth are involved in the solutions:
Students feel safer and can focus on learning.
Parents worry less.
Teachers and staff can focus on their work.
Schools can develop more responsive solutions because students are more likely to see or hear about bullying than adults.
School climate improves because students are engaged in taking action to stop bullying.
Parents can support schools’ messages about bullying at home.
