1.  Talk to your children daily about how their day was and their activities.  They will enjoy telling you about their day and you can give encouragement and advice when needed.

2.  Be active in the school activities.  Get to know the teachers and other school staff.  Support a positive atmosphere in your child’s school.

3.  Join the Parent-Teacher Association.  If you see a problem or something that is being done well, bring it up.  See something, say something.

4.  Explain the negative effects of bullying to your children.  All children are harmed by bullying.

5.  Teach your child to tell an adult if  he or she sees bullying because bullying is an adult problem to solve.

6.  Teach your child good problem solving skills so that they know how to interact with others without being aggressive.  Help other children in the neighborhood learn these lessons, too.

7.  If you child is being bullied, go to the principal.  Make sure it is stopped without future retaliation to your child and the bully is referred to appropriate intervetions.

8.  Set a good example for your child.  Always use good problem solving and communication skills.

9.  Check out your child’s teacher’s approach in the classroom.  Make sure he or she does not use and aggressive or bullying style.  If he or she does, report it immediately and demand action by the school.

  1. I am now back at the portlaoise Heritage Hotel. It has been a quiet day. I am reviving this website. Recently there was another theater shooting in the US. The background of the shooter shows that he had all the red flags we often see with public mass murderers:

    1. mental illness with substance abuse
    2. Often loses jobs
    3. domestic violence
    4. Orders of Protection
    5. a drifter
    6. No support systems.
    7. He was still able to buy a gun in Alabama.
    8. He was not under Court ordered treatment for danger to self or others.

  2. Are political rallies where people shove, shout, and hiut each other, examples of bullying? What do you think? Can we teach our children not to bully if we set an example that bullying is OK?
