Radio Smart Talk for Monday, April 1:
witf's Pushed Around project on bullying continues on Monday's Radio Smart Talk with two of the most basic but maybe most important questions of all when it comes to bullying.
Parents throughout time have dealt with the first -- what to do if your child is bullied. Experts say one of the most significant steps is to recognize when a child is being bullied. It may not be simple because most kids don't go to their parents and tell them they're being picked on or called names. Most often parents have to look for certain signs and behaviors like avoiding school or particular situations.
Monday's program will provide some ideas on how to tell if a child is being bullied and steps to take after determining the child is a victim of a bully.
The second question focuses on what many parents don't want to admit -- whether their child is a bully.
Again, the question arises -- how can you tell and then what should you do if you find out your son or daughter is bullying other children?
Dr. Stacy Molnar-Main of the Center for Safe Schools will be our guest.
We would like to hear your stories of bullying as well.
