Bullying

If your child is getting bullied, whether at school, or cyberbullying, it is a very worrying and stressful time for them and the whole family. These vlogs are full of tips and advice from families who have been through it, and could help you deal with both the bullying and the aftermath it may have on your child.

What to do if your child is being bullied

What should I do if my child is being bullied at school or nursery?

If your child is being bullied at school then the first thing you should do is talk to the school. They will have a bullying policy in place and will follow a strict procedure in dealing with the problem; they may also be able to provide you and your child extra support in rebuilding confidence once the bullying has been dealt with, although there are some activities you can do at home to rebuild confidence, too.

What is cyber bullying?

Unfortunately, whilst there are many benefits to children’s access to technology for homework and activities, there are some downsides. Cyberbullying is bullying that occurs through technology; by text, email, or on social media. Whilst this can be a scary concept for a parent, luckily, there are some very helpful charities set up to help with this form of bullying.
