“Be a Mate shut down Hate”

School is back and unfortunately this brings up the topic of bullying amongst school children of all ages.  It is important to let your child know they can talk to you about anything – and be available for this conversation.  It is equally important to help your children with coping strategies.

Dolly’s Dream has started the journey of spreading awareness on this issue.  Follow their facebook page or go to their website to show your support.

Dolly’s Dream have also published a fact sheet – “Signs of Bullying” which will help you spot different signs of bullying and some of the symptoms.
