What can moms do against bullying?
Here are some useful tips that moms should know when it comes to bullying:
1. Know the signs
The most common signs of bullying are depression, a lack of motivation to go to school, and sudden mood swings. Knowing these signs can help parents know if their child is being bullied, and helps them address the problem early on.
2. Teach children to be assertive
Teaching children to stand up to bullies is a good way to prevent them from being victims. Don't encourage violence, but encourage your children to speak up and not back down if a bully tries to threaten them. They should also learn when to walk away, especially if the situation starts to become heated.
3. Tell your kids to do something against bullying
If your child sees another kid being bullied, teach them to help out. Children feel better if they know that someone out there is looking out for them, and will not hesitate to help them if someone tries to bully them.
4. Support your child when they speak up
If your child tells you that they're being bullied, be supportive. Don't try and dismiss them or make them feel that it's their fault. Be supportive and tell them that they did the right thing by telling you.
5. Don't remain silent
Lastly, if you see a child being bullied, don't remain silent. Do your best to act upon the situation and let the bully know that you will be informing a teacher about the bullying if they don't stop.
