Dimensions of Early Childhood, v35 n1 p3-10 Win 2007
Bullying and harassment are increasing problems in educational settings around the world. In some countries, such as Norway, England, and Canada, the concern about bullying is so great that national governments have required schools to initiate anti-bullying policies. How can teachers and families reduce bullying in early childhood programs, elementary schools, and after-school programs? The purpose of this article is to increase the awareness of those working with young children about the serious effects of bullying and to present a practitioner-friendly bullying prevention plan.
