Webinar with Senior Researcher at The Fathering Project Erin Erceg
Erin takes parents through the world of bullying for children and what can happen at school. Bullying often occurs at school, as that is where children and young people gather in large groups and interact.
This webinar was recorded on Thursday 6 August.
In this webinar, learn how to:
- Open a conversation around bullying.
- Look for signals in your child’s behaviour that might suggest they are being bullied.
- Understand the first steps to take as a parent to resolve the situation and not intensify it.
Opening up the lines of communication around bullying early will encourage your children to talk to you later on if they have social problems or are worried about bullying.
