Health & Wellness - Is it Rude, Mean, or Bullying?

Your child comes home to tell you that they've been bullied, but when you hear them describe the situation, you’re not quite sure if bullying is what happened. Come learn the difference between rude, mean and bullying behaviors. It is important to distinguish these behaviors so adults and children will know what to pay attention to and when to intervene. We'll also review David’s Law (SB 179) to see how it impacts your child’s education. Dr. Vanessa C. Cantu, a licensed professional counselor, crisis intervention counselor for NEISD, and founder of the Bullying Empowerment Center, has worked in the education field for over 10 years. She also wrote her dissertation on bullying which gave her the opportunity to learn several prevention and intervention strategies to deal with bullying.
