and violence at school
Parents can help prevent bullying
According to the National Center for Educational Statistics, approximately one in five students report being bullied. Most children will therefore experience some form of bullying during their developmental years, if not as victims, then as bystanders or perpetrators. While schools have an important role to play in helping to eradicate bullying, parents toomust become advocates of treating others with kindness and respect. Here are a few ways moms and dads can help prevent bullying. 1. HELP KIDS IDENTIFY BULLYING BEHAVIORS Bullying can be exhibited physically or verbally, but also as a type of social behavior (mimicking, making faces, spreading rumors, acts of exclusion, etc.). Bullying can also occur as harassment perpetrated online (cyber bullying). In all cases, bullying
involves acts of aggression on an ongoing basis and is based on a real or perceived imbalance of power. Parents who discuss bullying in all its forms with their children are arming them with the capacity to recognize and report the behavior if it occurs. 2.TEACHKIDS TOTAKE A STANDAGAINST BULLYING Bullying behavior rarely occurs in isolation. More often than not, it’s a group phenomenon with a number of students involved as either participants or onlookers. But research indicates that almost 60 percent of bullying situations come to a halt when a peer intervenes on behalf of the bullied student (Hawkins, Pepler, and Craig, 2001). Teach your kids that they can make a difference by being an advocate for others.
3. MODEL HOW TO TREAT OTHERS One of the most powerful ways parents can help prevent bullying is by modeling appropriate behaviors. When parents treat the people in their lives with courtesy and compassion, their children often follow suit.
Thwarting bullying is more likely when parents actively take action to prevent it. The most important thing they can do is talk to their kids and keep the lines of communication open.
