A Note About Bullying
The issue we (parents and school staff) have with bullying is knowing when it is happening. It is not unusual for us to hear about a bullying situation months after it has happened.
So, a few notes:
- Read this article called "7 Surprising Things Parents Don't Know About Bullying".
- Keep an open dialogue with your child about how they are doing with friends, peers, frenemies, and kids that are sometimes just plain mean.
- Know the difference between RUDE, MEAN, and BULLYING. This article by author Signe Whitson gives a great explanation. The author also provides some tips and a quiz to determine if your child understands the difference.
- Let us know when you become aware that bullying is happening. Encourage your child to self-advocate and self-report, but if that doesn't happen, please contact the grade level administrator for support.
Bullying stinks. It can take the spirit right out of a child. But together we can certainly conquer the impacts on our kids.
