Pediatricians Help Spread Message on Bullying and Date Violence

Calling All Doctors . . . Keep the Bullies Away From My Child!

Bullying is not limited to pushes on the playground. For better, and sometimes worse, children have unprecedented access to their peers outside of school. Harsh words are easy to hurl when hiding behind a computer screen, especially as an anonymous user.

To help protect youngsters from ill will, the American Academy of Pediatrics has a new protocol called Connected Kids. The campaign encourages pediatricians to discuss bullying and date violence with their young patients and parents. Doctors can give mom and dad tips on how to address the two delicate subjects with their youngsters so that the child knows their parents always have their back. And for kids hesitant to broach the subject with their folks, a doctor may offer the perfect unbiased sounding board for the child.
