What to Do if Your Child Is Bullied Online

Pin It

I was lucky.  I'd never been bullied ... until that time.  I was thirteen and it went on for nearly a year.  It wasn’t physical. It wasn’t aggressive. But it was repetitive and demeaning: a rumour contorted, embellished and thrown around the classroom with wild abandon by those who wanted to humiliate me.

It seems like a blink of an eye since your little one was a helpless baby, needing everything done for them. Suddenly they're four years' old, starting school next year and you realise you're still dressing them, doing their teeth and clearing away their dinner plates. What gives?

In last week's blog, What to Do When Your Child Says They're Bullied, we looked at ways parents could support and help their children when they claim to be victims of bullying.

What to Do When Your Child Says They're Bullied

Pin It

My (primary aged) children frequently claim they're 'bullied' - even by each other:

"He's bullying me, he won't let me use the bathroom."

"I got bullied by some Year 5 girls today - they told me I wasn't allowed to play on the monkey bars."

"Cooper was so rough - he's such a bully!"

What to Do When the School Calls

Pin It

I have the school number programmed into my contacts so that when the school calls I know it’s them. Since my children are humans and not robots,  I will probably get a call from one of their teachers at some stage to chat about some behaviour that needs addressing.
