What can adults do to help stop bullying?

October 2017

It is important to understand what bullying is and what it is not. With that knowledge, you will be better equipped to recognize the warning signs when a child you love is involved in bullying — whether she is the bully, the bullied, or a witness to bullying.

Talk to your child about bullying before he is involved in bullying. That will make it easier for you to recognize if something happens and to get your child help. Be particularly vigilant for behavioral or emotional changes that may signal that bullying is involved.

If you determine that bullying has occurred, connect with school or community leaders to discuss how you can work together to provide needed support.
