Why bullying should stop


Published on Visit here to get solution for anti bullying

  • The key to helping our children avoid bullying is to help our kids develop a strong sense of self. If they have a strong sense of self, they will have the innate ability to stand up for what is right and what is wrong. Others kids will recognize this and respect them for it. It doesn’t mean they will always avoid conflict, but when they do encounter bullies they will be able to stand firm. As a way of helping everyone especially the parents, who find it quite hard to manage time, I found this great application which featured a safety app which gets me connected to a Safety Network or escalate my call to the nearest 911 when needed, it has other cool features that are helpful for your kids with just a press of a Panic Button.

Why bullying should stop

  1. 1. Why Bullying Should Stop?
  2. 2. TIPS 1) Be sure they have a friend. For children, having a good, consistent friend is so important. To them a good friend is someone they spend a lot of time together, its not as deep as we adults feel about it. Therefore, with the teachers help, facilitate a friendship. Create play dates, invite over for dinner etc. Knowing they have a special friend who DOES like them is very important for them to feel safe and good about themselves. 2) Put your child in a group. Swim, soccer, drama, choir or music groups give people a sense of belonging, therefore choose one that suits your childs abilities and interests and watch them flourish as they work together with others toward a common goal. (by the way, this is a good idea if your child is a bully as well since they will learn to work with others as a team; they cant exclude anyone here).
  3. 3. TIPS 3) Spend some one-on-one time making an All About Me Poster. As part of your regular one-on-one time tell your child that you have a great idea for an activity you could do together. Come prepared as you present this idea with magazine, cool paper, stencils, foam stick-ons, stickers, markers, etc. Each of you make a poster titled, "All About Me". After the poster is complete with images, words, etc. Write a sentence that paraphrases what the poster shows. For example, "I am a kind, sporty, cool dressing, train-loving, family loving boy." Then hang this poster in your childs room so they see it often and can reflect on what they love or like about themselves. The fact that youll be making one too will encourage them to do this properly. 4) Role Play. It is important that your child practices how to handle situations where they feel uncomfortable. Having the words and the plan beforehand is very empowering to a child. So, take a situation and discuss what they could do or say in return. Make this light-hearted. I did this with my son the other day. He was complaining that a boy kept yanking his hand really hard and wouldnt stop even when my son asked him to stop. I gave him an idea of what he could say to the boy and you should have seen what happened. He went from a sullen face and hunched over back to a perky, exuberant child saying, "That is an awesome idea, Mom! High five!!" He felt instantly empowered and I havent heard anything since.
  4. 4. TIPS 5) Read books. Reading to your child is not only a bonding experience between the two of you, it is such an opportunity to teach values or lessons. Children identify with characters in stories, especially if they are the same age. While reading books about bullying your child will realize that bullying is real, it exists and that its not only they who are experiencing the negativity. Here are some of my favourite books to read with your child. -The Juice Box Bully (younger school aged) -The Hundred Dresses (for older kids) -Stick Up For Yourself (8-12 years old) -The Recess Queen (younger school aged) -The English Roses Collection (8-14 years old) 6)Speak to your Childs School and Teacher. In order to eliminate bullying, it needs to become socially unacceptable. Remember when it was cool to smoke? Now it is socially looked down upon. We need to get our schools to take a stand on bullying and help make it absolutely unacceptable at any school.
