Health Tip: Teach Your Child That Bullying Is Wrong

Health Tip: Teach Your Child That Bullying Is Wrong


(HealthDay News) -- Preventing bullying must start at home, so parents must set a good example and discourage the practice whenever possible.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests how to discuss bullying with your child:

  • Explain that bullying is never acceptable.
  • Set rules around any aggressive behavior, making sure to be firm and consistent in enforcing them.
  • Lead by example; show your child that you don't need to threaten or embarrass others to get what you want.
  • Discipline in a non-physical way, such as by taking away privileges.
  • If your child has a history of bullying, work with school faculty to develop an appropriate solution.
