Parents, school staff, and other caring adults have a role to play in preventing bullying. They can:
- Talk about what bullying is and how to stand up to it safely. Tell kids bullying is unacceptable. Make sure kids know how to get help.
- Check in with kids often. Listen to them. Know their friends, ask about school, and understand their concerns.
- Tell kids to do what they like as in special activities, interests, and hobbies can boost confidence, help kids make friends, and protect them from bullying behavior.
- Model how to treat others with kindness and respect.
