Less than 30% of children getting bullied go to an adult to inform them about the incident and when they do, the responsible adults need to know how to handle the situation in the best way possible to minimize the damage. Also, children do what we do not what we tell them to do! This presentation provides insights into how parents can be who they want their children to become, accentuate the positive in their child, stay connected and always leave the line of communication open as they help raise a generation that values peaceful negotiations, respecting all and accepting diversity and differences. Parents also learn about the proper response and course of action to take when their child bullies or is bullied at school or online.
This presentation provides the latest research and information available on prevention, effective intervention techniques, legal responsibilities, procedures to follow during and after a bullying incident. As educators, your role in helping to identity, help and stop bullying is crucial. About half of children live with a single parent who are most likely juggling a busy daily schedule and may not have the time to provide daily guidance if their child is experiencing bullying at school. In some cases, you are the most important influence for a child that can help them heal their pain and get themselves out of a bullying situation. We provide a practical guide to provide a bully-free and safe environment for all at your schools.
