Bullying, Teasing & all that stuff – Parents’ Guide
Bullying and teasing are never wanted but realistically to-be-expected childhood experiences. Even if not experienced directly, most children will see nasty playground behaviours happening at some time in their school years. As a parent, knowing how to tell these behaviours apart – and then how to respond to them can be difficult and confusing. Ignore it? Tell an adult? Stick up for yourself? And what’s the process for any of these choices? Every parent wants their child to be happy, have friends and not to have to experience life’s tough BUMPS – like being teased or the HAZARD of being bullied.
This Parents’ Guide explores the differences between bullying and teasing and then introduces a range of tried, tested and proven TOOLS for helping children to manage these behaviours early, positively, assertively and effectively. And the BEST part? Teaching these skills to children before they experience either teasing or bullying is a great preventative and confidence building strategy. A companion Kids’ Guide is available in this title.
