Tips for parents and children to overcome bullying

Tribuna Connecticut (Danbury, CT) June 9:

"Surveys indicate that as many as half of all children are bullied at some time during their school years, and at least 10% are bullied on a regular basis. Bullying behavior can be physical or verbal. Boys tend to use physical intimidation or threats, while bullying by girls is more often verbal. Recently, bullying has even been reported in online chat rooms and through e-mail. Inappropriate postings have also been placed on social networking websites such as Facebook, MySpace, etc.  If you suspect your child is bullying others, it’s important to seek help as soon as possible.  If you suspect your child may be the victim of bullying, ask him or her to tell you what’s going on. You can help by providing lots of opportunities to talk with you in an open and honest way."
