Dear Dr. Cherrye,
As you know, school will be starting in a few weeks. Already, my child is dreading going back because she fears facing her bullies again this school year. What should school officials do to help children like mine decrease their anxieties, and hopefully have a school year free of school bullies? This really concerns me.
Dear this really concerns me,
Dr. Cherrye strongly believes that school officials must protect their student population. Children have the right to attend safe, bully-free schools. With this in mind, leadership should pay closer attention to bullying and not let up. This has to happen district-wide and the effects should matriculate beginning from the A-team (Board Members, Administrators, Principals) all the way down to the Parents, Faculty/Staff, and then our main stakeholders — the students. There has to be a system in place that can be felt and seen in our nation’s schools. Talk is cheap! Parents and especially the students being bullied are just plain TIRED.
- District-wide meeting
- School-wide systemic expectations
- Set standards
- Anti-Bullying meeting with students
- Social Emotional Learning techniques
- Enforce Rules – Remain Consistent
- Incorporate Social Skills in Lesson Plan
- Read my book, ‘A Bully Blueprint: Solutions for Kids’
I want to remind parents and teachers that I’ve written a guide on bullying which outlines step-by-step how to help both children – The bully-ee (victim) and the bully (perpetrator). My guide is entitled, ‘A Bully Blueprint: Solutions for Kids’. Please take a closer look at this guide. What I’ve written within the pages of my guide does work. I’ve personally used these techniques. I truly believe in locating the root of the bully’s problem. We have to dissect the issues, while helping the bully unlock what’s truly affecting him/her. Children are generally good, but there are times when life happens and children are the victims in their homes/world, and then they lurk around seeking who they can hurt just like they’ve been hurt. Find out how we can help the bully.
I’ve made it my mission to assist parents in resolving the bullying issues their children are suffering. Offering your feedback and suggestions in the comment section could facilitate meaningful dialog on this critical issue among ourselves and I encourage this. I will respond to each comment in a timely way. Should you wish to speak privately with me, please email be at CherryeVasquez@gmail.com, and I will reply promptly.
