If you are being bullied at your workplace, will you confide in someone or share worth someone and hope things get better? If you don’t, do you expect your child to do the same?
Our students perceive the effectiveness of telling an adult or a figure of authority determines who they tell when bullied. However, many of them are under the perception that nothing can be done to improve the situation even after they tell someone.

From the statistics, a good number believe that teachers are not all that ready to intervene on their behalf. Is that really true? We will be looking at that are in the next post.
