Bullying and violence are very difficult issues to deal with. It can be heartbreaking to learn that your child has been bullied, and frustrating if he or she is the one doing the bullying. But with positive intervention, you can help improve the situation.
If your child is prepared to deal with negative situations, he or she will be better able to handle bullying, and may even have a positive influence on the bully. And if you know when to step in, you can help prevent further violence from occurring, no matter whose child is involved.

Help your Child's School Step-In on Bullying
Youth Frontiers is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to change the way young people treat each other in every hallway, lunch line, and classroom of every school in America so that today's young people can make tomorrow's world better.
Interested in helping connect Youth Frontiers with your child’s school to help build a school community where students stand up for respect?
1. Talk to your school principal or counselor. Connect with your school principal or counselor to discuss what it would take for them to partner with Youth Frontiers to promote respect in your school’s hallways.
2. Help your school find funding. Many schools utilize their PTA funds to help schools partner with Youth Frontiers. Or reach out to a local business to sponsor a retreat. Because Youth Frontiers often partners with the business community, schools sometimes seek retreat financial support from businesses in their communities.Download a brochure about Youth Frontiers >>
