Top 5 Way To Help Bully-Proof Your Child

boy sadBoys Town  announced strategies to help keep your child safe from bullies.  The national child and healthcare organization, started over 90 years ago, is a leader in parenting advice.  Below are five ways to bully-proof your children:

  1. Encourage your child to develop strong, healthy friendships. Bullies are more likely to target kids who are by themselves than those in groups with friends.
  2. Take the time to talk to your child every day about his/her day at school. If you talk regularly, your child is more likely to open up and tell you when there is a problem.
  3. Take a solution-focused approach if your child indicates he/she has been a bullying target. Brainstorm possible solutions and consider the pros and cons of each option and share them with your child.
  4. Partner with your child’s school. Approach your child’s teachers and administrators and ask for their help in creating a safe learning environment.
  5. Communicate your love. Tell your child you are proud of him/her and that he/she always has your support.
