Bullying is a prominent topic, and more parents are on the lookout for warning signs and signals from their children. But sometimes, children aren’t comfortable telling parents what’s going on at school. That’s why SAMHSA has created the free KnowBullying app for smartphones. It is designed to help prevent bullying, and helps parents start a daily conversation with their kids to build resilience and prevent bullying issues.
This kind of guided conversation can help open a healthy parent - child dialogue and key parents into if their child is being a bully, or being bullied. This video has all the details. And because times are changing, bullying doesn't just happen in person, it also occurs online. Know how to monitor your child’s internet usage, and be aware of what they are saying / reading online and in social media.
