School bullying affects one in three children in the United States and represents a public health burden as students’ absentee rates increase. It also increases the risk of psychiatric disorders later in life. Public schools often place a major focus on minimizing bullying through educational programs and punishments. However, more work has to be done to educate caregivers within the school system on how they can reduce the effects of bullying. The goal of this work is to provide an educational resource for parents that details a community-oriented approach to intervene with school bullying. Caregivers can find statistics on bullying, what behaviors might be present in a bullied child, and what avenues they can pursue to support their child.
