Top Anti-Bullying tips for Parents & Carers

If your child is being bullied or you think they might be, here are some tips on how to talk to them and prevent further bullying.

 

  • If your child is being bullied, don’t panic. Explain to your child that the bullying is not their fault and together you will sort this out.
  • Bullying is never acceptable; and should always be taken seriously. It is never your child’s fault if   they’ve been bullied.
  • Try and establish the facts. It can be helpful to keep a diary of events. If the bullying is online, save or copy     images and text.
  • Find out what your child wants to happen. Help to identify steps you can take; and the skills they have to help     sort out the situation. Make sure you always keep them informed about any actions you decide to take.
  • You may be tempted to tell your child to retaliate but this can have unpredictable results. Your child might get   into trouble or get even more hurt. Rather – role play non-violent ways they can respond to children that are   bullying them (e.g. “I don’t like it when you say that to me / do that to me. Stop.”); show them how to block or   unfriend people if the bullying is online and help them identify other friends or adults that can support them.
  • Encourage your child to get involved in activities that build their confidence and esteem, and help them to  form friendships outside of school (or wherever the bullying is taking place)
