Turning Bystanders into Upstanders

Bystanders often play a significant role in bullying situations.  If your child sees bullying happen, what options do they have?  Here are some suggestions that you can discuss with your child:

·         Don’t laugh or join in because this makes you part of the problem
·         If you feel safe, tell the child doing the bullying:

            To stop,
            It isn’t funny,
            You don’t like it,
            It isn’t kind or respectful.

·         Don’t bully back
·         Support the child being bullied by checking in with them and telling them that you are sorry that this happened to them
·         If you are friends with the child who bullies, try to talk to them about it and encourage them to stop
·         Encourage your friends not to participate
·         Most importantly, tell an adult at school and home

Children can use their influence positively to build a safer learning environment and support each other.
