Stettler Elementary School to host informative evening on difficult situations and conflict

Kim Edwards, an expert in the field of bullying, will be facilitating this parent session

On Oct. 28th, at the Performing Arts Centre (PAC), from 7 – 9 p.m., Stettler Elementary School is proud to be hosting an interesting and informative evening for all parents wanting to help their children through difficult situations and conflict.

All parents want their children to be happy and successful.

Finding out that your child is having problems because of bullying, either at school or online (cyber-bullying), can be an upsetting and stressful experience. Bullying behavior is not always easy for adults or children to recognize or define. A fight between friends or siblings, or rough play between children with equal power is conflict, not bullying.

Bullying is when a person or group of people repeatedly and intentionally use their power to hurt, embarrass, threaten or exclude another person.

Participants who take part in this two-hour Parent Information Night will learn about the scope of the problem in today’s society as well as the difference between normal peer conflict and bullying.

Also, because we are living in a digital age, it is critical that parents be aware of what their children are doing online. Tips and guidelines will be provided so parents can help their children make positive choices while using social media and other technology. To conclude the evening, parents will also learn the same non-reactive life skills as the students will be learning during their sessions held that day at school.

The Dare to Care program is the recipient of the coveted Imagine Canada Award as well as the Government of Alberta Inspiration Award for Leadership in Bully Prevention, and it brings a new approach to building a caring and socially responsible community.

Kim Edwards, an expert in the field of bullying, will be facilitating this parent session.
