    Bullying Prevention Month

    October is Bully Prevention Month

    Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior that involves a real or perceived threat. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time.

    Bullying is characterized by 4 indicators; (1.) Repeating event (2.) Intent to harm (3.) There must be apower imbalance (4.) There must be an impact on the victim

    Types of Bullying

    1. Physical bullying includes hitting, kicking, tripping, pinching and pushing or damaging property. Physical bullying causes both short term and long term damage
    1. Verbal bullying includes name calling, insults, teasing, and intimidation Verbal bullying can start off harmless, it can escalate quickly
    2. Social bullying can be carried out behind a person’s back. It is designed to harm someone’s reputation and/or cause humiliation. Social bullying includes lying, spreading rumors, playing embarrassing jokes to humiliate, encouraging others to exclude someone, and damaging someone’s reputation.
    3. Cyber bullying can be carried out using digital technologies, including computer, Smartphones, social media (Facebook, kicks, Instagram, etc) instant messaging, texts, websites, and other online platforms. Cyber bullying includes hurtful texts, images, gossip or rumors, and imitating others online.

    How to stop bullying

    • Try to get your child to open up about what’s happening in their life by showing them that you understand, and won’t judge them.
    • Try to listen to the whole story without interrupting. Be empathetic, calm and show you understand what the child is saying. They might need to tell their story more than once.
    • Have a conversation about what happened. Try not to let your very understandable emotions (anger, distress…) show. Your feelings can intensify the child’s or make it worse for them and might even deter your child from talking to you another time.
    • Remind your child it’s normal to feel hurt, it’s never OK to be bullied.
    • Note what, when and where the bullying occurred, who was involved, how often and ifanybody else witnessed it.
    • Contact the school, the majority of children and teenagers do not report bullying to teachers.Be confident that once alerted the school will want to stop bullying behavior as much as you.
