Bully-Proofing Your Child - DARE to CARE
Posted on September 7th, 2015
All parents want their children to be happy and successful. Finding out that your child is having problems because of bullying, either at school or on-online (cyber-bullying), can be an upsetting and stressful experience. Bullying behavior is not always easy for adults or children to recognize or define.
Participants in the 2.5 hour Parent Information Night will learn about the scope of the problem in schools today as well as the difference between normal peer conflict and bullying.
Today’s reality is that we are living in a digital age so it is also critical that parents be aware of what their children are doing on-line. Tips and guidelines will be provided so parents can help their children make positive choices while using social media and other technology.
To conclude the evening, parents will also learn six, non-reactive life skills. Since it is likely that all children/youth will experience school based bullying or cyberbullying at least once during their school career, parents will be able to reinforce these skills at home and as a result their children will feel more confident and competent in dealing with bullying situations.
All parents (K-7) are strongly encouraged to attend this Parent Information Evening sponsored by School Council on Sept 16 from 6:30 - 9:00 pm in the OES Library Learning Commons.
