Most kids have been teased by a sibling or a friend at some point. And it’s not usually harmful when done in a playful, friendly, and mutual way, and both kids find it funny. But when teasing becomes hurtful, unkind, and constant, it crosses the line into bullying and needs to stop. It’s important to take bullying seriously and not just brush it off as something that kids have to “tough out“. The effects can be serious on kids‘ sense of safety and self-worth.
In this talk, parents will learn the proper way of handling and how to help their child cope with bullying behaviours; and how parents can play an active role in partnership with the child and school to reduce or stop bullying incidents.
