When 150,000 students miss school each day because of bullying, we need to address this pervasive and crippling issue more seriously. Bullying behavior is not always easy for adults or children to recognize or define. A fight between friends or siblings, or rough play between children with equal power is conflict, not bullying. Bullying is when a person or group of people repeatedly and intentionally use their power to hurt, embarrass, threaten or exclude another person.
Participants will learn about the scope of the problem and the correlation between bullying, mental illness, and criminal activity. As well, participants will be provided with tips and guidelines to help their children navigate both real world situations and the potentially dangerous digital world that is increasingly becoming part of day to day life. To conclude the evening, parents will be provided with a tool belt of skills to help their children deal with bullying situations.
