Parents: don't panic! The worst thing to do is over-react, storming into the school and demanding action.
I have spoken at hundreds of schools and had the pleasure of meeting the principal of each. With no exception, I have never met a principal that wasnít entirely devoted to the safety of every student that walks through the front door. Donít forget that if you didnít know your child was being bullied, the principal and teachers may not have realized it either.
Grab a note book and sit down with your child. Write down who, what, where,when,bystanders on each page.
Remember you need to demonstrate to your principal that this is a repeated action. Once you can demonstrate that there is a repeated action with an imbalance of power then it is time to contact the school.
As parents, we need to work together to reduce bullying in schools. That includes our behavior, demonstrated to our children at home and in our community. Ensuring positive communication with teachers and principals is vital to helping your child grow up in a safe school environment.
