Cyber-bullying Tips for Parents

Ask your child questions, maintain an open dialogue.

Keep computer in a common room.

Talk about your expectations regarding acceptable online/phone behavior before they receive the privilege.  Behavior online should be the same as what you would do in person or in front of someone you respect.

Make agreements and set boundaries about accepted use and behavior for online/phone communication. Often youth don’t tell parents because they fear losing technology privileges.  

Help your child think through how the information they put online reflects on them.

Inform youth about legal limits and future consequences of harmful posting online or by phone.

Ask your child to teach you about programs and technologies you don’t understand or of which you don’t have familiarity.  

Procedure for Reporting and Responding to Bullying

To qualify as bullying, an incident must have involve the following:

 

-There is an imbalance of power between the aggressor and target

 

-The negative actions are repeated and purposeful

 

-The aggressor and the target have drastically different reactions to the incident

 

-The target feels powerless to advocate for self.  

 

Additionally, students are taught that for a situation to qualify as a bullying incident, four things must always be present:

 

1. The issue has happened over and over again

 

2. The same people are involved

 

3. What happened was on purpose

 

4.  It hurt (body or feelings)

 

Many of the incidences we have at S.R.M. involve normal conflicts between students.  Frequently, students do not know how to solve the conflict or are unwilling to try and solve it.

 

 

 PROCEDURE FOR REPORTING AN INCIDENT OF BULLYING BEHAVIOR

  1. Parents and staff are directed to report incidents of bullying to the Principal, Assistant Principal, Dean of Students, or Counselor.  Forms for this can be found on the S.R.M. counseling website on the Family Page.  Forms are also available in the front office and counseling offices. Parents can request a form be sent home with the student as well.

     2.  Student's are also encouraged to report being a victim of bullying or when they witness bullying.  Students can get bully 

          reporting forms from their counselor.

 

 

 SCHOOL POLICY ON DEALING WITH INCIDENTS OF BULLYING

  1. Reported incidents are investigated and documented.  
  2. The parents of all students involved are notified.
  3. All incidents of bullying are viewed as serious offenses.
  4. The student who is the target may be referred to the School Counselors to develop coping skills while the "bully" may be referred for social skills building.

 

SCHOOL BULLY PREVENTION AND EDUCATION PROGRAM

  1. S.R.M’s PAWS state:  I will not bully other students and I will help a student who is being bullied, by speaking out and getting adult help.  School rules are taught by teachers and enforced by all staff.
  2. All students are taught basic skills for managing such situations during the school year.   Connected and Respected is used as the classroom curriculum to address bullying and improve the overall school climate.  Counselors also work with students on conflict resolution, problem solving, and anger management. 
  3. Mediation by the School Counselors is available to all students to prevent the escalation of conflicts.

TIPS for Parents when your child is bullied

  • Focus on your child. Be supportive, listen and gather information about the incident.  Try doing an activity while talking such as; walking, baking, or riding bikes.
  • Never tell your child to ignore bullying. What the child may “hear” is that you are going to ignore it. If your child were able to simply ignore it, he or she likely would not have told you about it. Often, trying to ignore bullying allows it to become more serious.
  • Encourage your child to immediately tell an adult at school.  If the child tells an adult at school, the school can deal with it right away, rather than after time passes and the child goes home to communicate the incident to a parent.
  • Contact your child’s teacher or principal to report bullying and to find out about the school’s bullying prevention plan. Give specific details and then ask for the next steps from the school. Follow up.
  • Keep your emotions in check. Give factual information about your child’s experience of being bullied, including who, what, when, where and how.
  • Help your child become more resilient. Talk to your child about being friends with certain people and knowing which friends he or she can count on. Encourage positive relationships by encouraging them to hang out with kids that make them feel good about themselves.
