How to help your child use strategies….
Children who bully seek to intimidate and isolate other children. Ignoring this behavior may not make the conduct stop. But responding with confidence, assertiveness and humor can help stop the bullying. If children who bully don’t get the response they’re seeking – anger, fear, sadness – they will move on and leave your child alone. Role play with your child to help them come up with confident responses and reactions to taunts that will won’t give the instigator the reaction they’re seeking.
