Notes from Mrs. Nelson

Counseling Lesson Theme: Being an Upstander

In classrooms this month, all grades have been talking about bullying and how to be an upstander.

Bullying is when someone is repeatedly and on purpose says or does mean or hurtful things to another person who has a hard time defending him/herself. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time.

There is usually an imbalance of power, meaning the person doing the bullying may be bigger, stronger, have more friends, or have authority over the person he/she is targeting.

Help your child be an Up-Stander!

  • Encourage your child to include as many kids as possible-invite those who may be alone

  • Practice with your child what they would say if they saw someone being bullied. Prepare them to say “Stop, that’s not okay, that’s not funny”

  • Teach them kindness, forgiveness, and tolerance- kids who bully deserve a chance to make changes

  • Set a good example by speaking up against intolerance in your own life and refusing to participate in gossip- send the message that any kind of bullying is not okay
