This year, our Duck Tape® Rolls Across America tour has partnered with PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center (NBPC) to help educate students about bullying in schools nationwide.
PACER’s NBPC provides innovative resources for students, parents, educators and others, and recognizes bullying as a serious community issue that impacts education, physical and emotional health, and the safety and well-being of students.
The Duck Tape® tour will be visiting schools across the country to bring a fun, educational Duck Tape® experience, while helping students take a stand against bullying.
Parents and Teachers
Help us “Stick Together™” against bullying.
Below are some tips and resources to help.
- If your child is being bullied at school, you can help. Work with your child and the school to make sure your child is safe. Learn More
- Call the school every time your child is bullied. Write down what they tell you and keep their e-mails & messages. Learn More
- Only 25-50% of bullied children will talk to an adult about the situation. Talk to your child about bullying and what they can do. Learn More
- Be aware of what your child is doing online. Establish rules about your access to your child’s texts, emails, and social networking sites. Learn More
- Ignoring bullying doesn’t make it go away. Help your children develop strategies to address bullying, whether it’s directed at them or others. Learn More
- There are lots of stereotypes about who gets bullied and why. Teach your child that no matter how a person looks or acts, no one ever deserves to be bullied. Learn More
- If your child is bullying others, seek help from your child’s doctor or school to help you and your child learn how to address bullying behavior. Learn More
- 60% of bullying situations end when a peer intervenes. Encourage your child to help the target of bullying by reaching out and being kind to him/her. Learn More
- Parents have an important role to play in addressing bullying. The end of bullying begins with you. Visit www.PACER.org/bullying for more information.
