The Dawn of A New School Year is Upon Us...
Parents, school staff, and other caring adults have a role to play in preventing bullying. They can:
-Help kids understand bullying. Talk about what bullying is and how to stand up to it safely. Tell kids bullying is unacceptable. Make sure kids know how to get help.
-Keep the lines of communication open. Check in with kids often. Listen to them. Know their friends, ask about school, and understand their concerns.
-Encourage kids to do what they love. Special activities, interests, and hobbies can boost confidence, help kids make friends, and protect them from bullying behavior.
-Model how to treat others with kindness and respect.
