There are pre- and accept one an- vention programs and school-based interventions to address bullying other for who they behaviors. However, parents can play an important role in bullying pre- are. vention. How often do we hear that behavior starts at home. In the case of bullying and society's attitudes to it, these often stem from the home environment. So the parental role in preventing and reducing bullying is vital. Tell your children regularly much you disapprove of bullying and why. Tell them you don't want them to take part in mistreating another student at any level, however small. Do not allow any type of bullying at home and deal firmly with any attempts by siblings to bully one another. Emphasize seeing things from another's point of view and the rights of others not to be mistreated. Assist them to develop effective ways of dealing with fear and anger instead of internalizing their feelings, taking them out on others or losing face in front of the peer group by allowing them to spill over. Raise children to be respectful and helpful.
