Bullying can happen anywhere.

 

It happens in our schools, in our neighborhoods, in homes which can lead to homicides and suicides. This is a very important issue you as parents should be readily aware of.

 

Most schools have policies in which they abide by to handle with such cases.

 

In the Douglas County School System, they have ParentResources that specifically give information on how to handle a situation if you child faced bullying at:

 What is bullying?

 

Bullying is unwanted aggressive behavior among school-aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally and excluding someone from a group on purpose.

What Can You do if Your child is a victim of Bullying?

 

 

 

In the Douglas County School System of Policies and Procedures for Elementary School it states what happens to the student who does the bullying.

 

 

Its considered a very serious offense. It is repeated 13 times in the elementary handbook and cleary states each offense level and the consequences in which it holds. If you student is being bullied they should tell their teacher, who will contact the parents of the other child. If student tell you, then you should contact your child's teacher to gain more clarity about the situation. If it happens to be on the bus, students should notify the bus driver. Again in your child complains about being bullied, then you should contact his or her bus driver.

Level Offenses of Bullying

 

How can you talk to your child about bullying?

 

 

Talk with you children. Involve yourself in their life. Check in with your children often, realizing children don’t often tell their parents when they’re being bullied. Know your child’s friends and who they hang with. Listen when they have problems and always be their confidant. Find ways for children to do things they enjoy, such as sports, scouts or the arts. Model how to treat others with kindness and respect. You are their first role model, know their eyes are always watching and ears are always listening.
