5. Bullying in school.
The attached PDF is a series of 4 handouts that addresses this topic entitled “Bullying- Both Sides of the Fence”. This series touches upon the common terminology used, types of bullying, what can be done to stop bullying, and what to do if your child is bullying others. Having an understanding of what constitutes and contributes to bullying can help parents and school staff to work together at addressing this difficult topic. CLICK HERE for one of the better anti-bullying videos we've come across in quite a few years. Very touching.
