While efforts are continually being made in schools to support our children and youth against bullying, this problem prevails. Thousands of kids miss school every day because they are scared to go to school as a result from bullying.
3 R‘s of Bullying (from stopabully.ca)
Recognize Bullying – recognize if you or someone else is being bullied and take steps to stop it
Refuse to be a Bully Bystander – don’t give the bully an audience as most bullying will not occur without others watching
Report Bullying – if you see or experience bullying – report it. Tell someone – your parents/a friend/teacher/counsellor or report it anonymously at www.stopabully.ca
If your child or someone you know has experienced bullying our children’s counsellors can listen and provide support, tools, strategies, self-esteem development and empowerment for getting through this difficult time. You will also learn how to develop assertive behavior, feel better about yourself and face others with confidence.
