The back-to-school season is a busy one. As you and your children begin to settle into your new and sometimes stressful routines, experiencing information overload is not uncommon. I want to remind you that the Calgary Police Service has dedicated resources available to you and your children through our School Resource Officers (SROs) and the Start Smart Stay Safe (S4) program.
What is Bullying?
Bullying is the intentional (planned) and repeated use of anger or aggression by one or more children directed towards another child or group of children. A bully tries to scare, harass or harm another child(ren), especially if the other child(ren) seems weak and helpless.
Just barely mumble the words, "Don't you have some math homework to do?" and you are likely to hear enough moans and groans to make you want to throw in the towel right then and there. Although it is not always the subject of choice, math does not have to be a nasty word either.
