Hope and Help for Parents
After attending this session, parents will never see bullying this same way again. Some parents come to the training with pre-conceived notions of how schools should handle conflict, but leave with a completely new perspective that unites their efforts, and the school’s.
Participants will learn the best ways to help their child solve social problems, and how they can rehearse these skills at home. Through role-playing common bullying scenarios, they find that empowering their child is a superior way to help them respond to social aggression, and grow in resilience.
