3) Your kid’s friend is getting bullied — what should they do?
4) Your kid’s friend is bullying someone else — what should they do?

“When adults respond quickly and consistently to bullying behavior they send the message that it is not acceptable. Research shows this can stop bullying behavior over time.
Parents, school staff, and other adults in the community can help kids prevent bullying by talking about it, building a safe school environment, and creating a community-wide bullying prevention strategy.”
5 out of 5 can help prevent that.
“Founded in 2006, PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center actively leads social change, so that bullying is no longer considered an accepted childhood rite of passage. PACER provides innovative resources for students, parents, educators, and others, and recognizes bullying as a serious community issue that impacts education, physical and emotional health, and the safety and well-being of students.”
Founded by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center in 2006, National Bullying Prevention Month is a national campaign that raises awareness for bullying prevention.
