Approaching Schools can be difficult for some parents. I hope the following information helps.
Approaching your childs' school about bullying can be intimidating but if you are prepared and agree to work with the school they can have a big impact on the bullying.
If the bullying is happening at school or outside of school and involves students from the school, you should let the school know the situation. Gather the information you have from your child to share with the school.
Bullying is taken very seriously by schools and they can be much more effective when parents report bullying and support their efforts to deal with it.
Schools will work cooperatively with you to resolve the situation and will also work with the other student's parents. However, due to privacy laws, they will not be able to share information about any other students involved.
Keep in mind the bullying sometimes will worsen once out in the open as the bully may retaliate for the intervention. AND to make matters worse if your child seeks help and it does make the bullying worse they are less likely to say anything the next time around.
