Bullying: Information for Parents and Teachers

I recently contacted Marlene Snyder, Director of Development for the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program. I wanted to know more on what I could do as a parent as well as what teachers could do to assist in the prevention of bullying. She recommended visiting the following sites:

www.olweus.org

www.stopbullyingnow.hrsa.gov

She also recommended encouraging your local school to consider using the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program. Some states require schools to have an anti bullying program. Even if your state does not require this, teacher and parent advocacy could help begin a program like this at your school.
