How To Help Teens Who Are Being Bullied

Bullying can sometimes be an unavoidable reality for teens. Parents are often confused about the best ways to help their children. Kids in the House, one of the online leaders in the campaign to end bullying, has published their top ways to help teens who are being bullied.

One of the most important pieces of advice that parents can give their children is not to try to provoke or befriend the bully. Psychologist Dr. Liz Laugeson advises children to avoid bullies and the areas where they hang out. In instances where that is difficult, many times a comment like “Is that supposed to be funny?” can serve to disarm the bully and remove the thrill.

For chronic bullying, child psychologist Dr. Stephanie Mihalas says that it is important for parents to check to ensure their school has a policy to prevent bullying, as well as a clear outline of how they deal with both perpetrators and victims of bullying. This serves to put both parents and victims at ease because it helps eliminate the feeling that the bully is “going to get away with it.”
