Support

Caring School Climate | School provides a caring, encouraging environment.

TAKE ACTION:

  • If you find out your child is bullying or being bullied, don’t add stress by showing your anger, fear, or disappointment.  First listen carefully and respectfully while your child explains her or his point of view.  Then work together to make a plan to solve the problem.
  • Talk with your kids – ask about their friends, about what it’s like to ride the bus or walk through the lunchroom.  Keep talking and asking questions, even when they don’t seem anxious to respond.  If you know or find out that bullying is going on at school, in a congregation, or in another organization, be sure to report it.
