Bullying Affects the Entire Family

When I shut my front door after dropping the girls off at school, I broke down in tears.  We are simply exhausted with the daily struggles of getting Grace to school.  I knew that bullying affects the entire family but I never really grasped just how much.  It is the endless conversations with teachers, Principals, with each other and by constantly being strong for your child.

I have been finding recently that I have been questioning every decision that I am making and wondering if they are the right ones.  Bully affects the entire family especially siblings.  They are also upset for their sibling and may also feel lonely as a lot of mum and dad’s attention is on their sibling.

Bullying affects the entire family so it is imperative that everyone looks after themselves as much as possible.

Strategies that can help your family with the effects of bullying are:

  1. Making sure that you are honest with each other with how you are feeling.
  2. Listen to your partner in how that they are feeling.
  3. Have someone that you can talk to about how you are coping.
  4. Make sure that you are eating healthy.
  5. Exercise can be extremely helpful to get the positive emotions flowing.
  6. Know that you are not alone.
  7. Never give up as your child needs you to look after yourself.
  8. Make sure that you spend time with each child.
  9. See how your other children are going.
  10. Come up with strategies on how you can support each other.
  11. One day a week, do something as a family.
