Communication with your child is key, you must know what is going on during their daily lives when you are not there. Most bullying occurs on the bus, at the lunch table, or even as recess. It is important to ask questions, but you do not want to be overly aggressive with them. Ignoring the situation though will only make matters worse.
Set up a meeting with the parents of the bully and the bully him/herself. Have them confront each other in a non hostile environment while you and the other child’s parents are present.
If you are unable to set up this meeting, then immediately contact your principle and have them do it. It is the schools duty to deal with situations involving bullying.
Stay tuned, more videos to come.

When children are bullied it is important to be knowledgable about the effects is can cause later in life. The most obvious effect is confidence. Is confidence one of the most important character traits that one must possess in order to make his/her mark in the real world? Of course, so we must make sure that we do not let it get out of control. Some other effects such as depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. It is up to us as friends, and as a community to stand up to this epidemic and prevent it from happening to the ones around us.

Sometimes it is hard to tell what is going on with your child. Their feelings flucuate and you feel that you can’t really put your finger on why. Children often feel embarressed to tell their parents that they are being bullied in school, on the bus, and in the neighborhood. It is our job as adults to be able to notice the signs of this situation before it explodes.
Make sure to look at a change in confidence and activities. These are the most common signs of bullying. They will not want to particpate in their normal activites like before. For instance, not going outside to ride their bikes like they usually do. Make it a point to address this situation directly and discuss it with your child. The worst thing possible is to ignore it and then more problems arise.
Please provide feedback if you feel appropriate.
