There's a great feature documentary, BULLIED TO SILENCE, that will help all parents, teachers, communities and youth themselves to be a positive role model to overcome verbal and cyber bullying. There's a 3 minute trailer on the film's website. There are lots of free resources for you and your child, whatever his/her age is.

Please comment on any experience you or your child has had with being bullied or being a bully. Either way, we need to respond with assertive, not aggressive behavior. Together we can change this national epidemic.

I don't know about overall but my six year old has been picked on for months by a girl in his class... It took me a while to get him to tell me about it... I encouraged him to tell his teacher but he didn't I finally talked to her during a conference and he says it's been better since then.

 My youngest son was the target of some mean names last year. It went on for about a month before I was aware of it. I immediately spoke to the school and they put a stop to it quick.

My 12 yr old son is a major bullt target. He's picked on daily. Verbally, physically, and emotionally. We are on top of it tho. School is aware and have him locker right by the office. I told them if I hear of him being bullied this yr, I would be on school property to protrct him all day every day if they dont take care of it. So far so good. Plus he is in counseling for the bully issues. They totally drained him last year I was not about to do it all over again.
