What is Bullying?

APS defines bullying as:

  • aggressive and unwanted behavior that is intended to harm, intimidate, or humiliate
  • involving a power imbalance between the aggressor/aggressors and student
  • repeating infliction or attempting infliction of injury, discomfort, or humiliation
  • a pattern of aggressive, intentional or hostile behavior that occurs repeatedly and over time
  • cyberbullying, when occurring through the use of electronic means

How can parents help?

  • Teach your student to speak out against bullying. If they observe an incident of bullying, they should inform an adult. Acting as an observer and reporting the facts of the situation is not tattling and it takes courage to do the right thing.
  • Encourage your student to reach out to a student being bullied with kindness and help them talk to an adult.
  • If you are concerned that your student is being bullied, share your concerns with your students counselor or administrator (see below) to develop a plan to help your child feel safe at school.
