Anti-Bullying Week 2022: Reach Out
The Anti-Bullying Alliance (ABA) coordinates Anti-Bullying Week, and this year’s theme is Reach Out.
“Whether it’s in school, at home, in the community or online, let’s reach out and show each other the support we need,” the ABA says. “Reach out to someone you trust if you need to talk. Reach out to someone you know is being bullied. Reach out and consider a new approach.”
This year’s theme aims to empower young people to do something positive to counter harm and hurt that bullying causes. From kids to teachers, influencers to parents, this year’s theme aims to involve everyone. “It takes courage, but it can change lives. So, this Anti-Bullying Week, let’s come together and reach out to stop bullying.”
From 14 to 18 November, take a stand against bullying in all its forms.
Unlike bullying at school, it is difficult to escape cyberbullying. As such some parents might limit how much their child can access their devices. However, these devices may also be the one connection they have to their friends or supportive online spaces.
Therefore, it’s more important to teach your child how to get help, where to report cyberbullying and options for reaching out to talk to someone.
Whether you’re a teacher, parent or carer, the ABA has resources to get involved with this year’s theme:
