We’re on a mission to help young people all around the world build positive body confidence and self-esteem. It’s no surprise that bullying has a huge impact on a young person’s sense of self – from school bullying to cyberbullying, it can affect every aspect of a child’s life. Which is why it’s so important to give the next generation the support they need to cope with teasing and bullying. If you’re wondering how to deal with bullying as a parent or mentor, we’re here to help.
With our articles and activities you can help a young person in your life understand what's happening and get information on how to minimise the effects of bullying among children.
There are many different types of bullying – in the real world and online. Sometimes the line between 'a bit of fun' and hurtful teasing can be blurred. This kind of teasing might not seem as serious as overt bullying, but it can still be upsetting and have long-lasting negative effects.
If you suspect a young person in your life is experiencing bullying, our partnership with Steven Universe might come in handy. In Episode 1, characters Amethyst and Jasper think about how words can make us feel as they learn how to talk about bullying. Showing children positive media like this will help them feel more resilient and confident in the face of bullying.
Our resources will help you in understanding bullying consequences and learning how to fight bullying with your child. Start reading and sharing them today.
