To reach students, educators need to partner with parents in conveying lessons about civility and peer respect. Parents do care, but often get involved reactively (after an incident), instead of proactively – to prevent peer harassment from ever happening. We discuss how schools can form a symbiotic relationship with families to make a compounding positive difference in the attitudes and actions of youth.

Specifically, we help educators clarify what policies, programming, and protocols should be made known to families – as well as what they can and can’t share involving targets and aggressors. In addition, we offer tips in how to defuse highly emotional situations with parents and get them to know that you are on their side when it comes to caring about their child. Next, we move to a discussion on what family involvement should look like on an informal and formal level to achieve mutually-desired ends. Finally, we equip educators with specific research-based strategies to share with their parent group on cultivating kindness, resilience, empathy, and character at home.
