This curriculum aims to provide bullying awareness, prevention and intervention strategies for parents and caregivers of children transitioning to middle school. Specific objectives are to enable participants to: understand the definition of bullying; recognize how widespread bullying has become; identify risk factors for bullying and being bullied; know the signs and symptoms of bullying and being bullied; know bullying reporting policies for their children's school districts; report bullying when necessary; talk with their children about having a zero-tolerance view of bullying; prepare their children for the risks of being bullied and how to come to their parents when the incidents may occur; practice communication skills and self-esteem strategies that can help develop and maintain positive parent-child relationships; be advocates for their children to help decrease bullying. Parents and Caregivers Against Bullying is divided into three two- hour workshops. This curriculum was developed using an array of relevant literature on bullying.
