Strategies for dealing with bullying

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

Tips:

Children need good father figures

Look for opportunities to be a father figure to other kids – nieces, nephews, your children’s friends, etc.
