My child is being bullied in school. What are my options to protect him?

Unfortunately, bullying remains a problem in our schools, and with cell phone and internet use on the rise among students, cyber-bullying is a new form of harassment some students must face. Whether physical or emotional bullying is occurring, it is important to make teachers and administrators aware of the situation so they can first work to resolve it. Ask that your child’s identity be kept from the other student(s) if disciplinary action is taken. If you feel that the school administration is not addressing a bullying problem appropriately, then legal action may be necessary, including seeking a stalking/no contact order from a judge. Contact our office for a consultation about your child’s situation.
