When Your Child Is Bullied

If your child is the target of bullies at school, it can be advantageous to work with the school to address the problem. But you also can empower your child by teaching strategies and skills that will help him or her gain some control, such as:

  • Avoiding certain individuals or situations when possible
  • Using humor or positive self-talk to prevent emotional (crying, getting mad) reactions
  • Expanding his or her social circle
  • Minimizing actions or behaviors that might invite bullying
