Ways to Communicate with Your Teen

Make yourself available for talks and try to have them everyday. Offer praise when deserved and remember to express your love, even if they act like they hear you, they do. Use good eye contact, it shows them that you have time for them and want to hear what they have to say. Be brief. Don't feel you have to know all the answers. It's OK to say, "I don't know, let's find out together."

 

Bullying

Bullying means repeatedly picking on or hurting another person:

  • Physically - hitting, tripping, kicking, etc
  • Verbally - name-calling, making threats, spreading rumors, etc
  • Emotionally - purposefully excluding someone, manipulating friendships, etc

If your child is being bullied you can help by:

  • Staying calm and talking to your child and the school.
  • Reassure your child that you and the school will help them.
  • Ask questions - Do they know why they are being bullied? Is there something they can do to help?
  • Think of peaceful solutions together - this will help them to gain confidence.
