HELP







Help for Teachers
  • Pay attention to pejorative words and demeaning taunts. Provide classroom discussion. Encourage students to brainstorm responses and preventive measures.
  • Be alert to bullying behavior in young children. Create a safe and confidential reporting procedure.
  • Use role-playing to help students feel empowered to support victims.
  • Be aware of students on the margins, those who appear to be regularly “left out.”
  • Be aware of warning signs of hate in students’ writing and art.
  • Participate in healing – Encourage students to extend support to victims of hate incidents. Write to persons or families in care of the local newspaper.

    From “Responding to Hate at School: A guide for Teachers,Counselors and Administrators,” published by Teaching Tolerance, a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center.


  • Help for Parents
  • Teach your children that words can hurt.
  • Promote diversity. Help your children to appreciate differences, yet understand that we are all the same in many ways.
  • Point out stereotypes when you see them with your children on television or in books. Explain why stereotypes are not fair, and encourage discussion.
  • Be a good role model. Children learn from what you do more than from what you say.
  • Be alert to warning signs that your child is being bullied: watch for withdrawal, lack of interest, acting out, fear of school or other activities.
