Health Tip: Prevent Bullying

Last Updated: June 03, 2019.

(HealthDay News) -- When adults respond quickly and consistently to bullying behavior, they send a message that it is not acceptable, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service says.

Parents and school staff can help prevent bullying by talking about it, building a safe school environment and creating a community-wide bullying prevention strategy, the agency says.

Here are the agency's suggestions:

  • Talk about what bullying is and how to stand up to it safely.
  • Keep the lines of communication open.
  • Encourage kids to do what they love.
  • Model how to treat others.
