For Parents
As parents, we expect schools to provide an environment that is emotionally and physically safe for our children. It’s normal to feel frightened and enraged about any kind of threat to our children’s well being, especially in a place where they have to be. When possible, try to notice problems when they are small. Pay attention to changes in your child’s behavior. Encourage children to tell you about what happens at school. Listen calmly without lecturing. If your child has a bullying problem at school, here are six solutions that can help parents to be effective in taking charge.

What to do if you’re being bullied:
When you’re dealing with bullying it can feel like there’s nothing you can do about it. You can convince yourself that trying to stop it might make things worse. If it’s happening in school, telling a teacher can seem like the last thing you want to do. Will your parents freak out and make a big fuss about it? If it’s happening in work, will anyone even believe you? Everyone has the right to live, work, study and play in an environment free from bullying, harassment, discrimination and violence. No one deserves or asks to be bullied and you certainly shouldn’t go through it on your own. Don’t forget that. There are things you can do about it.

“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself.” – Harvey Fierstein.

“Learning is impaired when children are scared”


Bullying and Cyberbullying can be difficult -- especially when it's happening to you. It hurts! Sometimes it's the most painful thing that can ever happen. But it's NEVER worth taking your life! Suicide is NEVER the answer! It ends all of your dreams, it's permanent -- you can't take it back, it hurts the people who love you --- and it doesn't solve the problem that's hurting you! Whatever is hurting you so bad that you would even think of suicide ... has a solution. And that's NOT suicide. You have choices and it's all about the choices you make ...for yourself or your decision to help a friend! Are you hurting as a result of being bullied or cyberbullied? Do you know someone who is hurting as a result of being bullied or cyberbullied?
