If you missed my earlier posts, Monday, I shared my daughter's personal story, Tuesday we looked at what constitutes bullying, Wednesday we talked about Who is a Bully, and Thursday we looked at Who are the Targets.
Today, we are going to wrap with the series with a look at how Bullying affects our schools and communities and what we as parents can do to stop it - whether our kids are the targets, the bullies, or even just the bystanders.
The effects of bullying on entire schools I found to be really eye-opening. Even if your child isn't the target of a bully themselves, their relationship with school and the atmosphere they experience every day is affected. We can't only pay attention when our child is directly impacted. They are being affected every day.
