Creating an effective plan of action to find a solution to your child’s bully problem at school is nearly impossible without some level of involvement by your child’s teacher, the principal, and other members of the school staff.
Unfortunately, many parents are very reluctant to make the school aware of this type of problem until serious mental or physical damage has been done to the victimized child. The reasons for this may include incorrect perceptions such as:
- the school will not take my complaint seriously
teachers are too busy to watch out for my child
distrust of the school system
the teacher doesn’t like my child
involving the school will only make things worse for my child.
