A New 21st Century Approach for Battling Bullying: How We Can Empower Our Kids
Willard, Nancy
Parenting for High Potential, v3 n6 p16-17, 19 Apr 2014
Clearly, U.S. schools must prepare students with the academic insights and skills necessary for success in work and life in the 21st century. But they also must ensure that students gain responsible social relationship skills. These social competencies are equally important for success in work and life. By focusing on such social competencies, academic performance also improves. Parents can encourage schools to shift to a 21st century approach in addressing bullying and harassment. A 21st century approach addresses the age-old problem of bullying by ensuring a positive school climate, engaging students as full participants in the effort, and resolving negative incidents in a positive and restorative manner. This article offers recommendations on how schools can implement a 21st century approach together with parent leadership efforts to ensure student voices are better heard and that students assume a greater leadership role in setting and implementing anti-bullying policies and programs.
