How To Help Your Child Being Bullied - Tips From A Parent

How to Help your Child Being Bullied- Tips from a Parent

As a mom of a child with special needs, every day is difficult. My son has ADD/LD. It’s hard for me to see him struggle in school. It’s even harder to see him get bullied. It’s an experience no child should ever have to go through. Here are tips to help your child:

 

1. Ask your child how their day was.

2. Look for unusual behavior. (not eating, refusing to go to school)

3. Listen for excuses like, "They are my friends," or "They were just playing."

4. Have great communication with your child's teacher and school staff.

5. Always make your presence at the school to resolve any issues. Be stern and get your point across.

6. Let your child know that you are there for them and that they can talk to you.

7. Have meetings with school staff and parents to resolve the issue.

 

I have done all of these tips myself and they have worked. Our children have to know that they are not alone. We are here for them. Bullying is not something to take lightly. No child deserves to be bullied. I wish much success to you and your child!
