If bullying occurs when students are not in school and are not on school grounds, the school may not have legal responsibility to do anything. But, school administrators can help all children by implementing anti-put down and anti-bullying programs in their schools. They can also help their students who have been bullied by providing counseling and support services to the families.
For more information on the subject of bullying, please go to our website: www.parenting.org We also have a website which provides parents and educators books, DVDs and other resources to assist with bullying and other negative behaviors: www.boystownpress.org
If you would like to speak with a counselor, we are here 24 hours, 7 days a week for parents and children of all ages. Take care and best wishes to you!
