What Parents Can Do to Help Schools Prevent Bullying

  • Every adult plays an important role in addressing bullying and making schools a safer place for children to learn and employees to work.

    Bullying can take many forms, such as hitting or punching (physical bullying); teasing or name-calling (verbal bullying); intimidation using gestures or social exclusion (nonverbal bullying or emotional bullying); unwanted sexual contact (sexual bullying); and sending insulting messages by e-mail, texting or social media sites (cyber bullying).

    Parents

    • Ask your child questions.
    • If you believe your child is the victim of bullying, please report it to a campus administrator as soon as possible.
