As the Anti-Bullying Alliance (organisers of Anti-Bullying Week) say: “As a parent or carer, you are a vital piece of the puzzle in tackling bullying. You have a unique role to play in guiding and supporting your child through their school years and there are many positive steps you can take to help keep your child safe from bullying and harm. One of the steps is knowing when to ask for support.”
Sometimes bullying that happens in one context (e.g. school) can spill over in to other activities (e.g. football) so it’s important we work together to address this.
