What You Can Do About Bullying in School
Good Morning 5D Community,
The Metropolitan Police Department wants to help parents ensure their children are safe at home and at school. Take the time this week to educate your children on how to protect themselves from strangers and how to safely walk or ride public transportation to school.
Tips for Today
Share with a Student, Tell Your Friends, Print out tips to give information to Neighbors
Listen to your children. Encourage them to talk about school, social events, other kids in class, and the walk or ride to and from school so you can identify any problems they may be having.
Children are often afraid or ashamed to tell anyone that they have been bullied, so listen to their complaints.
Watch for symptoms that children may be bullying victims, such as withdrawal, a drop in grades, torn clothes, or needing extra money or supplies.
Tell the school or organization immediately if you think that your child is being bullied. Alerted caregivers can carefully monitor your child's actions and take steps to ensure his/her safety.
Work with other parents to ensure that the children in your neighborhood are supervised closely on their way to and from school.
