Counselor's Corner - All About Bullying

Throughout the month of October, we are going to be learning about bullying - what it is, why it's important and how to stand up for ourselves and others. Learning happens best when it is done both at school and at home. I hope that extending our topic at home is just as much fun!  

Here are some discussion points to help you talk about bullying with your child

- What do you think the word bullying means?

- Why is it important to stand up to bullying? 

- Have you ever been bullied? If so, tell me about it.  

- Would you feel comfortable telling me if you were being bullied? Why or why not? 

- How can I help you stand up for yourself and others? 

- Have you ever had to stand up for yourself or others. Tell me how it went.
