Contrary to the old adage, words do hurt and the effects of bullying can take years to overcome. However, bullying remains asensitive issue for children and teenagers to talk about with adults; whether it is parents or their teachers. In this lecture, national anti-bullying educator Rosetta Lee will be discussing warning signs, boy/girl and various social/cultural differences, guidance for handling situations at home and school, and how to best open a dialogue with your child that allows them to effectively communicate and most importantly, stay safe.
Harvard graduate Rosetta Lee currently teaches at the Seattle Girls’ School (http://www.seattlegirlsschool.org/), an independent girls’ school that aims to empower young women from various ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds while providing a top tier educational experience. Additionally, Lee serves as Vice President on the Board of Directors for SMARTGirls (http://www.seattleawis.org/programs/smartgirls.html), an organization that encourages girls to excel in science, technology, and math, as well as on the Board of Directors for the Northwest Association for Biomedical Research (NWABR), with which she is developing an ethics curriculum funded by the National Institutes of Health.
Using her unique professional experience, Lee successfully identifies different types of bullying and biases’ and shares how victims, parents, and educators can respond to such conflicts in a way that is not only pragmatic, but empowering as well. This not-to-be-missed session will provide parents with the tools needed to support and educate their children in the fight against bullying.
