Bullying is a traumatic situation for all involved, including parents. While many resources exist to help increase bullying awareness and prevention, it’s also important to support kids’ and parents’ mental health. This is critical, whether kids are being bullied or are, themselves, the bully.
Psychologist Dr. Sam Jeannite discussed strategies for safeguarding kids’ mental health, supporting them in traumatic times, and proactively helping kids build better strategies. Sam also helped parents know how to manage their own stress in the face of their child’s bullying experience.
