National Anti-Bullying Educator, Rosetta Lee Discusses Parenting Essentials to Prevent and Address Bullying
On April 10, 2012, national anti-bullying educator Rosetta Lee spoke about how to identify the warning signs of bullying; key gender and cultural differences with respect to how children experience and deal with bullying; and pragmatic and empowering guidance and tools for parents to effectively prevent and address bullying issues. Her talk focused on how parents can best open a dialogue with their children that allows them to communicate and keep them safe and outlined basic support and skills parents can employ to help prevent bullying, including:
- Teaching young people social skills — particularly conflict resolution and communication skills.
- Giving young people opportunities to make a difference in the world.
- Teaching them diversity and inclusion skills.
- Helping young people develop real self esteem — not narcissistic and delusional views of themselves, but the ability to see clearly all their strengths and faults and still feel good about themselves.
