Coordinated by the Anti-bullying Alliance, this years’ theme is United Against Bullying. The ABA said: “bullying has a long-lasting effect on those who experience and witness it….From parents and carers to teachers and politicians, to children and young people, we all have a part to play in coming together to make a difference”.
For parents and carers, it is natural to worry about children being bullied, especially if you have experiences of bullying or particularly if a child is more vulnerable to bullying.
Bullying can come in many forms, such as cyberbullying, trolling, online hate and can be disguised as not being as obvious, so it’s important to know the signs, know where to go if your child is being bullied or is the perpetrator and also have regular conversations with them about what is and is not acceptable behaviour.
Whether you’re a teacher, parent or carer, there are great ways you can get involved and show your support, take a look below.
