Tutoring in Hoover, AL

08/18/2014
As the school year begins, with all of its possibilities for learning and fun, there is another, less desirable prospect. 28% of students between 6th and 12th grade have been bullied. Bullying is a long standing problem in our school system, and does not seem to be diminishing. In fact, in our technological age, there are even more ways. 7 out of 10 children admit to feeling cyber bullied. Here at The Tutoring Center we can help with the academic issues that often follow being bullied, but today we would like to help you as a parent or as a child who is being bullied, to deal with the situation in the safest manner for you. 

Bullying is classified as a repeated assault, verbally or physically, from one person or group to another. Typical forms of bullying are: 
- physical harm
- spreading rumors
- cyber bullying
- name calling
- teasing
- making threats

*Often there are multiple forms of bullying occurring simultaneously. 

What you should do:

- Remember that you did nothing wrong. You are not the one who needs to change in this situation.
- Confide in someone you trust to help you through it.
- Keep a record of what is done and said by the bully.
- Take action-if unchecked, a bully will often continue for long periods of time.

What you should not do: 

- Do not try to handle it alone, it is completely OK to ask for help.
- Do not respond with violence.
- Do not hide the problem from those you trust.
- Do not believe the lies you are being told. Often there is a problem within the life of the bully, you do not have to change.

Remember that it is up to the parent, the child, and the school to end the cycle of bullying. If you are the parent of a bullied child and are beginning to see the reflection of the situation in your child’s academic performance, rest assured that The Tutoring Center in Hoover can help get your child academically back on track.
