How to explain bullying to my child?

It is important to feel comfortable as a parent when you are asked by a child what bullying is.

Bullying is when a person or group of people keep doing things to you that make you feel hurt, upset or frightened and you cannot stop this from happening. Bullying can happen online or offline.

The difference between bullying behaviour and other aggressive behaviour is that bullying is repeated acts. So, the same person or group target the one person over and over.


Get some mental exercise

Challenge your brain’s powers with puzzles and games, and encourage your children to do the same.


Take your children out occasionally for a treat

Surprise your children occasionally with a fun treat such as ice creams, a swim at the beach or pool, or bowling.
