Bullying & Teasing
What Can I Do?

The Children and Families section of this site to explores
and discusses some of the behaviors that are early warning
signs of unhealthy relationships with your children, family
members, friends or co-workers. There is a similarity between
the behaviors of Bullying, Sexual Harassment and Intimate
Partner Violence

They are all about having power and control over another
person. They may also be indicators of future behaviors.
Children who bully might not grow up to be abusive partners.
However, children who bully and are not made to modify their
behavior may find themselves relying on these "relationship"
skills later in life. The information contained in this section will
help start discussions about and raise awareness of the
importance of early prevention and education regarding
unhealthy relationships and abusive or harassing behaviors.

Violence is a learned behavior. In order to stop the cycle of
violence in individual relationships, we must look at a bigger cycle.

This is the cycle of children growing up in abusive and violent homes and then becoming abusers or victims themselves. Does this mean that they are destined to repeat the pattern of their parents, brothers, sisters or grandparents? No, it does not. However, they are at an increased risk to do just that. We, as caregivers and community members, must recognize and challenge this risk. We must educate and support our children, youth and teens (link Teen section). We must give them alternatives to violence and victimization.

Begin making your child aware of bullying school!
