Online Resources on Bullying
Compiled by Charlene Davis
Bullying has become an increasingly pervasive topic in our nation, although I doubt this troubling issue is limited to America. But, more powerful than the issue itself, is the concern and the collaborative efforts of so many who are continuously strategizing to resolve the underlying triggers for this aggressive behavior. Below I share a few web sites that I found to be impressive on this topic. It is my hope that as you explore these, and others, you will pass this valuable information along!
- About.Com: Bullying and the School Bully
The National Youth Violence Prevention Resource Center
- Profiles gang, school and television violence.
- Caters to the parents’ perspective in informative articles such as: “5 Steps to Take if Your Child is Being Bullied.” Educators can refer parents to such resources, or include them in their webpages/newsletters.
- Focuses on the literacy aspect in: “Children’s Books about Bullies and Bullying.” This is a great support for content integration given that teaching time devoted to topics like this can be very limited!
- Targets guidelines for the school in articles such as: “Bullying: What is the School’s Responsibility?”
- A profile of the bully is provided in article such as: “Bullies.” This can be helpful in exploring and addressing the needs of the bully himself or herself.

- Links to other websites, such as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’: Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA), StopBullyingNow! – a very cute, animated presentation, complete with “webisodes”
