Bullying Articles and

Helpful Resources for Parents


By: Stephen Walton

In the following compilation of bullying articles we endeavour to provide parents with answers to the following questions;

1) What does bullying mean?
2) What are the different types of bullying?
3) Why do kids bully?
4) What motivates these bullies?
5) What are the effects of bullying?
6) How does it affect your own child?
7) What are the responsibilities of our schools in combating bullying?
8) What can parents do to protect their child from a bully?


As bullying is an extremely complex topic many websites are devoted specifically to this important issue.  The aim of our articles presented here is to provide a general understanding of bullying among children, and to recommend some excellent resources for further investigation.    

Combating bullying must be a combined effort for children, parents, teachers, school boards, coaches, counselors, and anyone working with children in a leadership capacity.     

...in our attempt to stomp out bullying, we must be vigilant in recognizing its signs, take a proactive approach to its eradication, and ensure our efforts are genuine and not perceived as smoke screen propaganda.   

I hope these bullying articles provide insight and realization that bullying is an extremely serious matter. Its affects can be devastating and any child can become a target of bullying… including your own.
