barcroft bullying prevention
Barcroft Bullying Prevention
  • When adults within a school are committed to preventing bullying behavior, requesting adult intervention will help in equalizing the power imbalance between bully and victim.
  • When bullies are confronted with a united front of their peers who are supportive of the victim, the bully’s power is defused. Peer disapproval is very helpful in stopping the control one bully has over his/her peers.

The De-Bug System

1. Ignore

2. Say “Stop It.” Calmly

3. Say “Stop It.” Firmly

4. Walk Away

5. Tell an Adult

* If you feel unsafe immediately tell an adult


and Cool Off

Talk It Out


What is the problem?

How can you solve the problem?

help your child to be assertive
Help your Child to be Assertive
  • Tell them to Stop
  • Tell a friend
  • Tell an adult
  • Walk Away
  • If other kids are nearby join them so you are not alone
  • “I” message, “When you… I feel…. I want…”
teach through conversation and example
Teach through conversation and example
  • As soon as children begin to interact with others, we can begin to teach them not to be bullies and not to be bullied.
  • Give them words for their feelings
  • Limit and change their behavior
  • Teach them better ways to express their feelings and wishes
  • Children do not learn to solve these kinds of problems and get along by themselves. We need to teach them.
  • "She's not my friend and she can't come to my party."
  • "You don't have to be friends with her today, but it's not all right to make her feel bad by telling her she can't come to your party."
  • “Sara isn’t cool enough to be in our group.”
  • "It's not all right to treat other people this way. How do you think she feels being told she can't play with you?”
if your child bullies others
If your child bullies others
  • Your first response will probably be defensive.
  • Take a deep breathe and really listen.
  • Bullying and aggressive behavior usually mask feelings of vulnerability.
  • Look for what is going on in your child's interactions with others and what is going on internally, causing your child to behave that way.
talking to your child about bullying
Talking to your child about Bullying
  • Bullying is not acceptable in our family or in society.
  • Provide appropriate ways to express frustration and anger.
  • Role-play, act out the new behaviors.
  • Ask, “How can I help you with this? Who could you go to in school if you see yourself getting into this type of situation again?
  • Specify the consequences if the aggression or bullying continue.
  • The goal is to stop the behavior, understand your child's feelings, then teach and reward more appropriate behavior.
