Whether your child is a target, inclined to be the bully, or wants to be more than a bystander, this session will provide helpful strategies that every parent, or caregiver can use effectively. Bullying falls in that spectrum of one treating others badly.
How is it learned? Sometimes the target becomes the bully out of frustration. Learn the legal definition and its practical application. Teach your child what to do when you are not present.
