Help for Parents
Rachel's Challenge does not provide direct counseling or intervention services for students who are dealing with bullying. However, some of our partners specialize in helping students that are facing this on a daily basis.
Please contact the National Center for Bullying for immediate help and more information:
This used to be the way bullying was handled. Have you ever heard this? “Just get over it,” or, “It’s no big deal.” A popular saying is, “Stick and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.” Well, that’s just crazy! Whoever said that never went through what your student is going through. Words can be weapons just as powerful as sticks or stones.
Here’s the deal. Every student has a right to live and go to school in a safe environment. It is the responsibility of adults who are in charge to ensure that safety. Being bullied is not your student’s fault, and responsible adults must be available to listen and help.
There are also some other great online resources.
