If your child is being bullied or you think they might be, here are some tips on how to talk to them and prevent further bullying.

You may be tempted to tell your child to retaliate but this can have unpredictable results. Your child might get into trouble or get even more hurt. Rather – role plat non-violent ways they can respond to children that are bullying them (eg. “I don’t like it when you say that me/do that to me. Stop.”); show them how to block or unfriend people if the bullying is online and help them identify other friends or adults that can support them.
