How to Prevent Bullying: A Parent’s Perspective


Bullying continues to be a problem in our society. Every day kids are tormented by bullies on playgrounds, in schools, and online. People are quick to deal with the bullying after it has occurred, but what can we do to prevent bullying from happening in the first place?

I moderated a discussion, How to Prevent Bullying: A Parent’s Perspective.” I was joined by a panel of experts who shared their insight on this important topic. Panelists included:

Rick Weissbourd from Project Seatbelt

Julie Hertzog, Director of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center

Deborah Temkin, Ph.D, Bullying Prevention Initiative Manager at the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights

Kathleen Bunn, Owner/Author of the parenting blog, Life with 4 Boys
