Quick Tips - Help My Child Is Being Bullied

If you have found out that your child is being bullied, act immediately. Tell your child that it isn't he/she's fault that their being bullied and there's no reason why your child should adjust or change to suit the bully fit.

Here are some tips on how to help your child overcome bullying: ?Try not to panic or create a fuss, instead remain calm. ?Try not to express or communicate your worries or anxieties to your child. ?If you suspect your child is being bullied, choose a relaxing time such as bed time to discuss their problem. ?Your child may not explain everything the first time so keep trying, but don't press for details, put words in their mouths, and don't force them to speak. Rather, tell them you will talk another time. ?If the child is from another school, contact a representative of the school. ?Any behaviour towards your child that may be threatening or physically abusive, report it to the police. ?Most importantly, reassure your child that he/she has done nothing wrong. ?Contact the school to bring your concerns/issues to the school's attention.

The school your child attends will probably have anti-bullying strategies to beat bullying. You can also visit the school's counsellor who deals with these welfare-type issues.
