When a parent recognises that a teenager needs help, they're more likely to get it. Bullying in Australia is common with around one third of students saying they have experienced bullying at some point. While we might all be aware that bullying can have serious consequences, young people don't always see it when it's happening, and can feel ashamed or powerless to act if they do. With access to information about bullying, there are clear cut steps that you, as a parent, can take right now to ensure a safe environment for your teenager and that action is taken to address the situation.
