Finding a Solution to the Problem of Bullying

Posted on 02-05-2015 | Kids R Kids Learning Academy of West McKinney

We’d all like to think that our children are too sweet to be a bully and too popular to be the object of someone else’s bullying. The reality is, a lot of children face insecurity and fear when they enter new environments like a preschool and because they are learning to develop social cues and navigating new environments, bullying can happen at an early age.

 While it’s tempting for the teacher to always side with the victim and punish the bully, this creates more opportunity to continue the bully-victim syndrome. A technique called “liberation teaching” can be used to offset the continuance of bully vs. victim. Teachers implement this technique when they take time to address both the victim and the bully and use the instance as a learning opportunity for both parties. If a problem persists, parental involvement is required to help determine how to equip the bullying child with a more acceptable way of behaving.

At Kids ‘R’ Kids, we take our role as the First Step to Higher Education™ very seriously and are passionate about providing a safe and welcoming environment for all of our students. We implement the philosophy of “Hug First, Then Teach” in every level of learning and teach children the importance of respect, understanding, and healthy self-expression.
