One helpful article with tips on combating bullying is "Bullying and Teasing: No Laughing Matter," available on Scholastic.com, as of 2015. Another useful article is "Bullying in Schools: Seven Solutions for Parents from Kidpower," which Irene van der Zande published on Kidpower.org.
The Scholastic article educates parents on common warning signs that their children may be subjects of bullying at school, as well as on tips for addressing the problem. Giving the child space to talk about what has occurred, relaying what the child says to the teacher and scheduling an appointment with the school counselor are constructive ways to work toward an end to the bullying, the article explains.
Pinpointing the root cause is one of the key ways parents can help their children escape bullying, according to Kidpower. For example, the bully may have underlying emotional issues the school needs to address.
