BULLYING IN MIDDLE SCHOOL

Parents can prevent, report, and talk about bias-based behaviors at home to create a supportive environment.

Bullying is a serious issue that affects many students in middle school. As a parent, it's important to take an active role in preventing bullying and creating a safe and supportive environment for your child. Here are some bullying prevention tips for parents of middle school students:

 

  1. Talk to your child about bullying: Start by having an open and honest conversation with your child about bullying. Ask them if they have experienced any bullying, and if so, how they handled it. Explain what bullying is and make sure your child knows that it's not okay to bully others or to be a bystander.

  2. Teach your child to be assertive: Encourage your child to speak up for themselves and to be assertive when they feel uncomfortable or threatened. Teach them how to say "no" and how to set boundaries with their peers.

  3. Encourage empathy: Help your child understand the importance of empathy and treating others with kindness and respect. Encourage them to put themselves in other people's shoes and to consider how their words and actions might affect others.

  4. Monitor your child's online activity: Cyberbullying is a growing problem among middle school students.  

  5. Keep in mind that your children are going through a transition time, from childhood to adolescence.

  6. Learn about bias-related behavior, which includes any physical, verbal, and nonverbal behaviors that can create intimidating, discriminatory, hostile, offensive, or harmful environments.
