Whether your child encounters physical bullying or cyber bullying, we have ways you can help.
An estimated 28% of students in grades 6–12 have been bullied, and 70% of children say they have witnessed bullying in their schools. Children who are bullied repeatedly over a long period of time are at most risk of problems with behavior, mood, school performance and family or social relationships.
Many children are hesitant to talk to an adult about bullying. There are multiple types of bullying, including physical, cyber, verbal and relational bullying. Learn signs your child is being bullied and how to help your child.
