What do I do if I think my child is being bullied?
Get as much information as you can from your child – What happened? When? How many times did it happen? Who else was there? How did your child respond? How does your child feel about what happened? Is your child worried it will happen again?
Listen. Don’t blame.
Try to identify if it was, in fact, bullying. Don’t call it bullying until you’ve gathered all of the facts.
If you believe your child is being bullied, contact your child’s teacher or school principal. These individuals are trained in the DASA requirements and can help you and your child.
