Being bullied can seriously affect a child in many ways. If your child is being bullied at school, here are some tips.
- Help the child with positive strategies to be strong, not weak, eg by saying ‘leave me alone’, walking away, seeking new friends or telling a trusted adult
- Don’t blame the school but enlist their help to solve the problem (& stay calm at any meetings)
- Don’t deal directly with the other child or their parents if you are angry
