Although bullying is not a new issue, societal changes and technological advances have made it an ever-changing and evolving issue. In the past, we dealt with the schoolyard bully. But today our children must face not only the schoolyard bully but the cyberbully as well. As a mom, I understand just how heartbreaking bullying can be. My goal is to provide you with the information and resources you need to deal effectively with bullying. Whether your child is the bully, a target of bullies or simply a bystander, you will find what you need to deal with the situation. My hope is that together we can combat bullying and put an end to future incidents.
