EXPERT ADVICE:

Twitter Chat: Let’s Talk about Bullying

 

You’re invited! 

The Mother Company is hosting a twitter chat about bullying, and welcomes you to join!

Recently, a new study published in the journal Psychological Science links victims of early childhood bullying to a troubled adulthood. These days, several harrowing stories of teenage Americans committing suicide due to consistent torment are making the headlines.

Parents today are naturally on the alert.

What can parents do to support their children in the face of bullying? How to guide a bullying child away from his/her aggressive tendencies? What about the bully-victims (ie the bullied kids, who then turn to bullying themselves), said to be the most vulnerable set of kids?

Please join us with your questions and concerns on a thoughtful discussion on bullying and our young kids.

Joining our expert panel is:

Dr. Robyn Silverman is a child/teen development specialist. She is also an expert contributor to the book Bully, a companion guide to the acclaimed film of the same name.
