Online Resources for Bullying

Finding bullying resources is simple today with the advent of the internet. Despite the ease of gathering statistics, it’s important to differentiate between good information and poor information. Poor information may blame victims for being bullied, have improper collection techniques, or be skewed in favor of a particular social opinion. The following sites offer accurate information that you can easily access from the comfort of your home or the classroom.

 

* StopBullying.gov – This US Government site that has a wealth of information about combating bullying and educating the public about different types of bullying. It has teachable content for both the bullied and bullies about why bullying is bad and how to stop it. They are in partnership with the Department of Education and provide up-to-date information to help stop bullying. 

 

* NoBullying.com – This website claims to be the "World’s Authority" on bullying and they have plenty of information about how to help different groups of people who are experiencing bullying. 

 

* Anti-Bullying Alliance – This organization is based out of London, England. They have information that is laid out in an easily accessible way despite their transatlantic separation from US anti-bullying initiatives. They have advice for everyone, including teachers, students, parents, and others. They even have information on programs that you can start in your local school with support.

* ActAgainstViolence.apa.org – This organization is from Washington DC and provides handouts, tip sheets, webinars, and more, all about preventing violence and raising safe kids and creating strong families. Their goal is to stop violence in our families and in our schools.

 

* American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry – This is a great place to find bullying facts and information as well as guides to help families combat bullying, whether their child is being bullied or is the bully. Often a child who has been bullied needs help building self-esteem, and finding a counselor for them can help. Likewise, if you have a child who is a bully, getting professional help for them can make all the difference.

Bullying is a chronic problem in most schools and should be addressed prior to any problems being developed. Schools that start an anti-bullying program from day one are less likely to have serious bullying problems.
