Bullying - Education

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, 1990, states that every child has the right to feel safe at home, at school, and in the community. In many instances, bullying at school does not allow a child to feel safe - rather, it can make children and youth feel excessively uncomfortable, scared, excluded, or hurt. Many parents have concerns about their child when it comes to bullying. Some worry that their child is being bullied at school, while some worry that their child is the one doing the bullying. Bullying can affect a child both physically and/or mentally, but it’s not always obvious to a parent when it is taking place as not all children who are experiencing bullying will ask for help. Are you wondering if your child is being bullied at school, or being a bully? Bullying is any type of behaviour that negatively effects someone else, and often happens over long periods of time. Name calling, spreading rumours, physical abuse such as hitting or punching, stealing, and threatening are all forms of bullying. In recent years, Bullying prevention has become a focus in schools across Canada, and there are more resources and avenues for help and support than ever before. If you are looking for resources available to help identify the signs of bullying at school, or, if your concerns go one step further, and you would like to seek professional help for a child who is experiencing bullying at school, we can help.
