Tools for Parents to Cope With Bullying
Thanks to Barb Schwartz ( Barb.Schwartz@illinois.gov ) with the Illinois Department of Aging who shared these resources. She received her information from Melinda Perez-Porter of the Brookdale Foundation. Much of this comes from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHSA):
About Bullying: Every day in our schools and communities, children are teased, threatened or tormented by bullies. About Bullying is part of the 15+ Make Time to Listen. Take Time to Talk initiative and provides parents and caregivers with information about bullying and methods for communicating with children about the climate of fear created by bullying. The messages exchanged between children and their caregivers in just 15 minutes or more a day can be instrumental in building a healthier and safer environment for children.
