Think you’re powerless when your child is being bullied? Think again. There are important steps parents can take to help their child through the experience. It starts with making sure your child understands that you love them unconditionally. Tell them in no uncertain terms that you have their back. Next, get them talking about what’s happening by being an attentive listener. Help your child brainstorm how they can address the bullying. And finally, encourage your child to connect with a trusted adult in the school, such as a coach, teacher, or counselor. Bullying hurts — but parents can help.
