TRANSCRIPT

Fox on Family. What if your child tells you they're being bullied: "They may not use the word bullying, but maybe they say 'hey somebody's really bothering me at school.' And I think our gut instinct as parents is to say, just ignore it."

But Julie Hertzog, head of the bullying prevention center at non-profit Pacer, says it takes a lot of courage for kids to speak up; many aren't telling their parents.

So she recommends thanking them and letting them talk: "Giving that support to your child and saying I'm so glad that you're telling me about this - stress that, and that way you're encouraging the conversation around it."

Then, have them help you come up with options; what they want to change and who to talk to, to help make it happen: "For kids it's not always even about fixing it right away. It's about giving them some of that power back that they've lost by being bullied."

Restoring some confidence and self-esteem, and reaffirming they're being taken seriously, with an action plan that also helps if it happens again.

There's much more at pacer.org / bullying.
