Telling vs. Tattling: Getting Adult Support in Handling Bully ... | Bullying |
Teaching kids to recognize the signs of a bully and to alert adults.
Does your child worry that if he “tattles,” the bullying will worsen? Help him to realize that this is exactly what the bully wants him to think! Isolation is how the bully operates. It is only by telling an adult that your child can end the isolation that the bully has begun. When the bully realizes that his intended victim is bold enough to connect with others, he loses his stronghold.
