Standing up Against Bullying

September 22nd, 2014

Did you know that 40% of Tulsa Oklahoma children and young adults say they have been bullied at some point in their school career? That number may surprise you, but bullying is becoming a major problem facing kids and teens today.

Bullying is no longer just used to describe fighting or physical aggression. Kids and young adults can experience verbal harassment, cyber bullying, social exclusion and physical hostility.

Having an open and honest dialog with your children can help prepare them to deal with a potentially dangerous and tough situation. It also opens the lines of communication, and will allow your child to feel more comfortable talking to you about this sensitive subject.

Not sure how to start the conversation? Below are some questions you can ask your child:

–          What do you think bullying means?
–          Why do you think kids bully other kids?
–          Have you ever been nervous to go to school because you were afraid of a bully?
–          What do you think parents can do to help stop bullying?
–          Do you ever feel like your friends leave you out on purpose?
–          Do you see bullying going on at your school?
–          Have you ever tried to help someone who was being bullied?
–          Who are some adults you trust to talk about bullying with?

Bullying is not a normal part of growing up that a child or young adult should experience. Children should feel safe going to and from school, at after school sports, and at home, but for some this isn’t the case.
