Bullying: What Every Parent Needs to Know
According to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, nearly 50% of all children will be subjected to bullying while they are at elementary or secondary school. At least 10% of children are bullied on a regular basis. The stress from being bullied can create problems for children at school. Students may be fearful of attending school, riding the bus, using the bathroom or being alone in the hallway. And many suffer in silence out of shame and humiliation.
On Wednesday April 13 at 6:30 p.m. The Kirkland Police Department is coming to St. Johns Episcopal Church to help parents better understand bullying and its effects on children while offering strategies for protecting children from either being bullied or becoming a bully. Join us for a potluck at 6:00 p.m.
A children’s program and youth group are available at no cost. Nursery available upon request.
Please call the church office to reserve your spot or sign up in the Narthex.
