Bullying often Starts in School and continues into the Workplace
First we love ’em, then we hate them, but the crucial thing is do we understand them?
According to the NSPCC statistics
38% of young people experienced cyber bullying.
Almost 46% of children and young people experienced bullying at some time
But this is the most worrying of all
18% of children and young people who worried about bullying said they would not talk to their parents about it.
How many times have we read about these awful tragedies in the papers and the parents always seem to say the same thing: “We didn’t know it was happening” or “We didn’t know it was that serious”.
The old saying goes: “Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me”
Unfortunately this is not always true for those who are bullied.
If your child came home and had the courage to tell you they were being bullied, would you know what to do?
Can they trust you not to get in a state and rush straight off to the school or the bullies parent?
Do you know that fills them with fear and that’s why most don’t tell.
Children who are bullied at school are more often than not bullied at work.
The other reason for secrecy is shame, when they learn techniques of self esteem and confidence, there is no shame.
Learn to help them with techniques of trust and resourcefulness which will stay with them for life.
After all we know bullies operate in the workplace just the same.
