Through a series of hands-on activities, parents will learn how to use proven communication skills and strategies to encourage their children to talk with them about bullying at school, and respond effectively.
Bullying and other types of mistreatment undermine student achievement, and are harmful to young people’s social and emotional development.
These are challenging issues for families to address, especially since parents/guardians or other adults are often unaware of the incidents that are happening.
