My child is being bullied, what should I do?

Published June 6, 2021


MSN quoted Amanda Nickerson in a story about how parents can manage a situation where their child is being bullied. If parents of the victim choose to contact the parents of the aggressor, they should do so in the least demanding way possible. Nickerson suggests starting the conversation by saying, “I am hoping for your help with something involving _____ and ______.’ Avoid saying your child/my child, if possible. You can acknowledge that this is uncomfortable but also say that you would want a parent to talk to you about [a similar] situation.”
