How Do You Feel Bullying Should Be Handled?
It seems we are hearing more and more about children being bullied. We are also hearing about different ways to handle it.
What do you think should be done?
I feel that a parent should let their child/children know that if they are being bullied they need to come to parent right away. Let them know you will do whatever needs to be done (legally) to get it stopped. Once the parent finds out their child is being bullied they need to file a police report and, if the bullying is being done in person file charges against the bullies.
The parents of the victim also need to make sure the parents of the accused are made aware of the problems. This should be handled by the police.
If the bullying continues after that, the parents of the bullies and the bullies themselves need to have charges brought against them and, hopefully, if found guilty, be fined and/or sentenced to some jail time.
