The Prevention Team has come up with ways to detect and become knowledgeable when this happens amongst children. We can't do anything about it if we don't know it is happening. Communication is vital here.There is no easy way to stop this but the first line of defense is always to call attention to it. It gets worse as it festers.


The Prevention Team teaches children to use their words to begin to confront problems and solve them themselves. They might, for instance, teach children how to use "I messages..." to give them language to confront a problem with. Sometimes, by using these prompts and calling another child out for their issues.


The Prevention Team wants to educate and prepare children. Bullying has many victims. The person being bullied, witnesses to the bullying, and the person doing the bullying. When a child sees behavior that upsetting to him/her, someone needs to be aware and know about it.
