Are You Talking to Your Children About Bullying?
Suicide Safe Screen Shot
Did you know that 24 percent of female students and 19 percent of male students report being bullied at school? Talking with your child about bullying is an important step to understanding whether bullying is affecting him or her. Research shows that parents and caregivers who spend at least 15 minutes a day talking with their child can build the foundation for a strong relationship and help prevent bullying. SAMHSA developed the free KnowBullying mobile app to help facilitate meaningful conversations about bullying anytime, anywhere.
