Bullying is an all-too common occurrence in most schools. According to the American Psychological Association, approximately “40 to 80% of school-age children experience bullying at some point during their school careers.” How do you recognize bullying behavior? What do you do when a loved one is a bully or a victim of a bully?
To learn the answer to these and other questions, attend a special Workshop on Bullying in the Schools, Saturday, March 16th, 10:00 a.m., at the Eyes on the Future Daycare Center, 1773 W. Lunt (at Ravenswood). I am sponsoring the workshop together with the Chicago Commission on Human Relations. Free childcare will be provided.
Bullying includes not only physical threats and behavior, but also emotional and verbal abuse, cyber-bullying, and sexual and homophobic bullying. Learn to define and recognize bullying behavior and what to do when your loved one is a victim or perpetrator of bullying.
The workshop will focus on helping parents and guardians become better informed and better equipped to manage and respond to bullying behaviors and situations.
Please take advantage of this important and informative workshop.
