How to cope with bullying?

This is a two fold post. Anxiety towards school has been at an all time lately, this morning it was flat out refusal. Getting to the bottom of it, it’s bullying that escalated recently. Any parents who have unfortunately been through this too? What steps did you take? It’s sad that my six year old who loves school is now so afraid and anxious to go :(

Oh that’s so sad! Yeah I really dived into what was happening and collaborated with the school. I placed importance on that my son has social and emotional delay and this is where he needs support. I found them great to deal with

Thanks so much, I’ve reached out to her teacher to speak with her today. She’s a kid who’s always loved school so it’s sad to see her scared/worried to attend.

My first point of call would be to talk to the school about this. They would have a policy on it and would have encountered this in the past and may have strategies. It is so sad that it is starting at a young age.

Great response from the school! My advice would also be to keep a record and/or paper trail via emails etc of all the conversations and strategies being suggested. If this ever has to be escalated, you will have documentation of the process that’s been followed etc. Well done advocating for your girl!! 🙌🏻

All the suggestions above is great strategies and glad to hear the teacher is supportive. Definently record and keep document trail. This can include conversations with the school, any support you use and also change in your daughter behaviour, so you can keep eye on the signs for future. Also arrange a follow up meeting with other the teacher just to check in how it is going.
