Teach Assertiveness


Having the courage to look a bully in the eye and stand up to him is a very effective anti-bullying tactic, but it's also one that takes practice.

This tactic can be very effective, but shouldn't be used in cases of severe bullying or if there is the potential for your child to get hurt.
