  1. Watch the video together, then brainstorm examples you could give to families to help them recognize both bullying behaviors and reporting. You can use examples from your own experience (be sure to change names) or examples you make up. For instance:
    • Give an example of teasing as a part of a typical relationship and an example of teasing as bullying.
    • What does it look like when name-calling becomes bullying?
    • Show the difference between a child who is tattling and a child who is reporting.
  2. Write these examples down to share in your work with families. It can be more difficult to recognize bullying at young ages, and both parents and children will find it easier to take positive actions when they know exactly what to look for. Remind families that both bullied children and the bullies themselves need help from the adults around them.
