Bullying: Common Questions And Answers

Parents, coaches, school sports administrators and youth sports organization leaders who want to prevent bullying will find these commonly asked questions and answers helpful. Starting with “What is Bullying?” these seven basic questions and answers will arm adults with knowledge and skills to make the right choices in bullying prevention efforts.

Topics include:

  • Bullying vs.normal conflict between peers
  • How to talk with young people
  • What should children do if they witness bullying?
  • What if my child is the bully?

For answers to these questions, and more, see the link below.

This resource stems from a Positive Coaching Alliance Trusted Resource – Kidpower – a nonprofit leader in abuse and violence prevention for children and adults. Kidpower makes it FUN to learn about being safe, rather than scary. Caring adults can use the Kidpower Method™ to protect children and teens from bullying, child abuse, abduction, and other violence.
