There are lots of ways you can help your child with bullying.

Many children experience bullying, or show bullying behaviour to others. While it is a common problem, it’s not something you should ignore or accept as a normal part of life. 

Perhaps you’ve heard these common messages about bullying: 

  • “Everyone gets bullied at some point, it’s just a part of growing up.”
  • “You should ignore it and they’ll soon get bored.”
  • “It makes a man of you.”
  • “It never did me any harm.”
  • “You need to stand up for yourself.”
  • “It’s just banter/ teasing.” 

Bullying often happens in school and social situations among peers, but it can also be carried out by a stranger, particularly online. The bully may be an adult or have authority, such as a group leader, older sibling, or member of your community.
