    Bullying and Teasing
     
    According to educational sources, here are some things you can do to help your child become more aware of bullying behaviors:

    • Encourage your child to talk about how to make friends, how they treat their friends and how to be a good friend. 
    • Discuss with your child what bullying is and what kinds of behaviors demonstrate bullying.
    • As you watch television with your child, help him or her identify  language, dialogue, or actions that demonstrate bullying behavior, such as "put downs" or "jokes" in comedy shows.
    • As your child deals with bullying situations at home or school, be open to discussing ways in which he or she can handle those situations.  Discuss how to avoid bullying situations.
    • Help your child become sensitive to his or her own behaviors or language that may be of a bullying nature as he or she deals with siblings or friends.  

    5 ways  to handle a Bullying situation:

    • Walk away; find your own friends
    • Tell an adult and get the teasing stopped fast
    • Ignore the tease, which takes the fun out of it
    • Stand up for yourself without fighting
    • Do what you feel is right, not what others tell you to do
