3 Ways to Stomp Out Bullying

3 Ways to Stomp Out Bullying

What to do if your child is left out of a group or being bullied…
Very often, your child will think that someone they considered a friend has joined the bully’s side. While this does hurt, have a conversation with your child and discuss how much of a friend he or she really was if this behavior is occurring. Encourage your child to find other friends and to join groups and clubs at school. The best revenge is for your child to be happy.

What to do if your child is being verbally and emotionally bullied…

The best way for kids to handle this is to look the bully straight in the eye and give a comeback such as, “You really need to get more original” or “yeah – sure,” and walk away without having any conversation. By taking away the bully’s power, the bully will see that your child is not bothered and will eventually stop the behavior.

What to do if your child is being cyberbullied…

If your child is being called names or people are talking about your child online, the best thing to do is block these people. If, however, your child is being threatened, you should print out all instances and contact the police immediately.
Is your child being bullied or simply experiencing a normal social interaction? When a kid is joking around and calls another kid a name, and it is not a repeated and constant, that is normal social action. On the contrary, the repeated and constant cruelty of name calling is considered bullying. Explain the difference to your child so he or she understands if the interaction is bullying or not.
