4 Tips for Parents, Teachers & Caregivers to Address the Bullying Epidemic!

Bullying is an epidemic that must be stopped. Not sure what you can do as a parent or a teacher? Try these four tips to address bullying! 

  • Adapt your strategies. Studies show that zero tolerance policies are ineffective. More successful methods are both positive and tied to curriculum. 
  • Avoid labeling. Focus on discussing the behavior (bullying), rather than labeling a child a bully or victim. 
  • Get creative! Include the arts in bullying-prevention programming. 
  • Start early. It's never too early to teach your child to have compassion for others.
