If your child has experienced bullying, we hope these anti-bullying activities will help them. Use The Letter Challenge video, activity and action checklist to give your daughter or son the confidence they need to put bullying behind them.
Ways to deal with bullying
Rumour spreading, gossiping, excluding others, teasing about looks or weight – sometimes young people feel pressured to just ignore this kind of behaviour or brush it off as a 'joke'. But words can hurt and sometimes it's important to speak out. With The Letter Challenge, we aim to empower your daughter or son to be strong and stand up to bullies.
Using sentence-starters as a prompt, this activity encourages young people to see the bigger picture about bullying. Your child may not realise it, but often a bully can be rather insecure. It might be because they can't control things in their own life that they feel the need to pick on others. But, of course, that's no excuse.
The Letter Challenge: write a letter about being bullied
Sometimes it's hard to stand up for ourselves when we're teased or bullied. Watch The Letter Challenge video about Chloe with your daughter or son, and then think about how you'd deal with a similar experience by writing a letter to yourselves. You can do the activity together or encourage your child to do it on their own and share it with you afterwards.
