October is National Bullying Prevention Month

If you haven't already heard, October is National Bullying Prevention Month. Bullying has always been a serious issue. Because of advances in technology, the weaponry available to bullies today is more dangerous and can leave longer-lasting scars. Bullying is done in schools, in local communities and now social networks and mobile phones. It extends beyond school walls. The reality is very few opportunities exist for those suffering to escape the wrath of a bully.

Make sure you take some time during October to sit down and talk to your kids about bullying.  There are many resources available that offer information and advice on what to say about the dangers of bullying off AND online.
