Keep an Open Line of Communication with your Child

There is an excellent editorial today in the Erie Times, “Teach Kids to Report Wrongdoing.”

Data shows that 25% of all teens are bullied, and too often it goes unreported. This is a special challenge when you consider the number of children with special needs who have significant language delays. In earlier blogs, I discussed how to recognize the signs of bullying, how you can build your child’s self esteem, and what to do if you think your child is a victim of bullying.

Parents must help their children understand that it’s important to talk to a person they trust if they see, hear or experience bullying or other actions that may be considered wrong or dangerous.
