Any child can experience bullying. It can occur in many different forms and impact children for a very long time after, affecting their performance at school and their emotional, psychological and physical wellbeing.

So it’s important that parents and teachers know the signs of bullying and are familiar with the various ways to tackle it.

Here's a list of ten interesting articles that discuss how to identify and deal with bullying; what works and doesn’t work; how to keep children safe online; and your role as a parent or teacher.

1. Spelling out the B-word

This article discusses need for clarity about what is and is not bullying – to avoid children wrongly using the "B" word for any anti-social behaviour they might encounter at school.

2. What should parents do if their child is bullied at school?

4. Resources for teaching safety online

6. Cybersafety is just... safety

Cybersafty involves teaching young people about respect, privacy, responsibility, literacy, care for others and care for the self. The things that really upset and distress children online have very little to do with code, cyber criminals or dodgy end-user agreements.

7. Recipe for social media parenting

A key parenting role is to pass life skills onto the next generation. This now includes walking the social media talk. Social media is a life skill that parents just have to educate their kids about, so they can be safe online.

8. What Australian children worry about

Keeping your mind in good shape is just as important as keeping your body healthy, but we put far less time and effort into it. The Kids' Happiness Survey reveals more about what dominates children's thoughts.
