A step by step guide for parents

Is you child being bullied. A step by step guide for parents

On a daily basis we hear from distressed parents of children allegedly being bullied in school or being bullied on-line

 (eCRIME or Cyberbullying). Occasionally, the bullying is occurring in the community but very often this is linked in some way to the school the child attends – or a club or social group. The approach we recommend applies in most cases.


Is your child being bullied, is a guide written by the founder of the National Bullying Helpline designed to walk you through every step of the process and help you resolve the problems your child is facing. This guide includes everything you need to know from setting expectations, the role of the school, how to escalate matters to detailed template letters to the school, Headmaster and Governors or Trustees.

What to do if you are accused of being a bully

Over 80% of managers admit that bullying occurs within their organisation. Few admit to being responsible. Have you ever been accused of being a Bully? In an ideal world we would not need to deal with workplace bullying but unfortunately it happens.


This guide, What to do if you are accused of being a bully, will help you understand how to defuse a contentious situation. What measures you should take to protect yourself and it will explain what your statutory rights are.


Anyone accused of being a bully will, naturally, be upset. If you are accused, it may be you are being subjected to a form of bullying yourself. You can protect yourself.

Thank you very much for this (The Guide for Parents) it is extremely helpful. I was shocked on how accurately you describe the situation with examples of the school’s denial through to the feeling of helplessness of parents.
