Is your child being bullied in the new school term?

Parentline Plus, part of the Family Lives Group, is offering parents a series of free family friendly leaflets that help address and tackle the problem of bullying.

Titles include: ‘Bullying – Prejudice and Difference’, ‘Bullying – Via Internet and Mobile Phones’ and ‘What can I do if my child is being bullied’.

The information contained within Parentline Plus’s anti- bullying packs are designed to strengthen families, improve family communication, increase parental coping skills and build on parental confidence whilst equipping adults with a clearer understanding of bullying and the reasons for it whilst promoting self-confidence and self-esteem.

Jeremy Todd, Parentline Plus Chief Executive said:

“Bullying is a real concern to families and parents of bullied children often find the situation traumatic and difficult to manage. Now that the school year is a few weeks old, the signs of bullying may be beginning to show. Some families may find it difficult to help a child who is being bullied and we believe our anti-bullying pack will empower and equip parents to find individual solutions to their own particular problem. Concerned parents should contact Parentline Plus or visit our “Be Someone to Tell” website if they need support.”

Parents who wish to receive the free pack can email parentsupport@parentlineplus.org.uk or telephone our 24 hour helpline 0808 800 2222 with your postal address.

Additional bullying tips, including: ‘If your child is being bullied’, is a bully, cyber bullying and bullying’, can all be found on the Bullying UK website.
