Bullying is every parent’s worst nightmare. As parents, it is natural for us to want to protect our babies from the outside world. You don’t want their feelings to get hurt, you don’t want people to say mean things to them and you certainly don’t want them to say mean things to other people. But the reality is that kids will be kids and bullying is everywhere. We have to prepare our kids and teach them how they should respond when it happens to them or when they see it happening to others. We have to teach them the definition of bullying and make sure they understand why it is wrong to participate in it or initiate it. It’s a difficult but necessary conversation every parent must have with his or her child. But you don’t have to go it alone. Our experts at Boys Town have put together some conversation starters that will help you open the door to a meaningful discussion with your child.
