Conflict among peers is common, and not necessarily a bad thing. Disagreement, teasing, and conflict are part of growing up, and children and adolescents need to develop skills to resolve these clashes. However, bullying, an extreme form of peer conflict or teasing, can be physically and psychologically harmful. Therefore, it is important for programs to be able to identify bullying, and to promote positive peer conflict resolution techniques for children and adolescents. This article offers a guide for out-of-school time program practitioners in identifying the prevalence and addressing bullying. Also presented are questions that can help assess the prevalence of bullying, victimization, and pro-social behavior of children and adolescents in one's program. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
