When bullied, your child needs you, and it is important that you keep your heart warm and head cold.
- Your child or adolescent needs to know that you understand and provide support
- Contact the school
- Let the school take care of investigations and measures
- You can complain to the county governor (fylkesmannen) if the school does not do enough
When you're told that your child bothers another, it hurts.
- Do not dismiss the person who tells you about it
- Talk quietly and seriously with your child
- Cooperate with the school
- Collaborate with the guardians of the person being bullied
"It takes a village to raise a child"
- Talk lovingly to your child about the others in the class and in the street
- Ask your children to be aware and to contribute to helping others in class and in their street feel that they belong.
- Ask your child to tell at home and at school if anyone is being bullied.
- Collaborate with the other guardians
- Cooperate with school
