The beginning of the school year brings possibilities, possibilities to learn, make friends, and prosper. Unfortunately there is also the possibility that your child will experience the torment of being bullied. It is a long standing problem in our school system, one that does not seem to be going away. With our technological advances in fact, there are more ways to go about bullying. 7 out of 10 students admit to having been cyber bullied at some point, and 28% of all students between 6th and 12th grade have been victims of bullying in general. The Tutoring Center would like to help you today by providing some information about bullying and what you and your child can do to stop it. 

Bullying is the repeated action of harming a person, physically or verbally. Some typical examples are: 
- physical harm
- spreading rumors
- cyber bullying
- name calling
- teasing
- making threats

*Remember that often multiple types of bullying will occur together. 

To Do’s When Being Bullied: 

- Do remember that you are the victim and that there is nothing you need to change, the problem does not lie within you
- Confide in someone you trust to help you through the situation
- Keep a record of all the bully says and does
- Take action-unchecked bullies will continue 

Not to do’s: 

- Do not try to handle the situation alone, it is OK to get help
- Do not respond with violent actions
- Do not hide the problem from those trustworthy individuals
- Do not believe the lies the bully is telling you, the trouble lies within them, not you

If your child is being bullied, you may begin to see an academic shift, in that he or she will have lower grades as an effect. Remember that it is up to you, your child, and the school authorities to put an end to the cycle of bullying. However, The Tutoring Center in Powder Springs is fully prepared to help your child get back on track academically speaking.
