Bullying Prevention Month

| 0 comments

Bullying doesn’t confine itself to one month of the year, but having a month where we as a community look at it, and what we can do to combat it, is critical. At CEA we mark this month by sharing information and resources with our families because this is an issue that we deal with more often.

Now that our social and emotional lives have moved largely online, bullying looks different. But its impact remains the same. Some research shows that cyberbullying has even deeper impacts than bullying occurring offline. This type of bullying is pervasive, hard to track and invades our homes and other safe spaces for kids.

Many of our tools and resources do not fully address this new online life, but schools are a great resource for what to do about cyberbullying. And Pacer Center also has some great online resources.
