Talk to your children, monitor their social media and make them empathetic. Be an active role in their lives no matter how busy or tired you are.
Talk with the child(ren) on how to be strong and be able to defend themselves verbally and if needed physically. There are some children that will stop if the other child just ignores such behavior. Has your child told a teacher or trusted adult at school yet?
The schools need to start enforcing the "Zero tolerance" policy...which they haven't. I partly blame the schools just as much as the parents who are not interacting and monitoring their children. They have zero policy if a kid eats a pop tart into the shape of gun and will expel him, but their was a girl who recently committed suicide was beaten up at least five times in the school and those bullies were allowed to still attend the school. Its ridiculous!
Talk with the child & the school,Good luck & let us know how it goes ;)
