Here are a few pieces of advice that can help you to keep your kid safe.
1. Stay Connected with your child
If your child is feeling alone and powerless he’s the perfect victim for bullies. So it’s very important for your child to maintain connections with faithful friends and supportive adults. They need someone they can tell what’s going on in their life without any doubts of others reactions. They need to know you’re there to help them in every aspect of their life without being ashamed or anything else.
2. You should Create Awareness
If your child feels that you will never do anything he won’t even bother telling you his problems. Teach your child that he should create awareness when encountering any problems. Make sure that they don’t feel like cowards once they decide to tell you about bullying. Teach them it’s a bold and powerful move.
3. Explain to your child what Tattling really means
Many times children refuse to say something so they don’t feel like tattles. Explain to your child that that’s exactly what the bully wants them to feel like. It’s one of the ways Bullies feel safe to continue bullying. Once the bully realizes he won’t be safe while bullying your child he loses power and will to continue.
4. Act quickly once you find out your child is a victim of bullying
The faster you act the faster bully will stop bullying. The longer bully has the power over his victim the stronger the holds are. The bullies are the strongest once they know no one will take care of their victim. It’s an obvious sign for them to proceed at doing what they’re doing without fear of any consequences.
