Parent classes are offered in English and Spanish for parents and guardians of children who are struggling with bullying. Participants will receive valuable information on bullying and learn how to effectively address these issues. We provide strategies to combat bullying and offer resources to parents and children when needed.
In early 2018, we are launching our Cyberbullying 101 parent classes. This presentation will provide an in-depth look at cyberbullying, internet safety, and online etiquette. We will give parents resources, tips and tools to combat cyberbullying. Parents will learn how to start the dialogue with their children and on navigating the internet, social media sites, phone apps, and most importantly, how to stay safe online. This class will help parents convey to their children that is they feel attacked, stalked, or bullied online, that they can always get help.
The bullying and cyberbullying classes are separate one hour classes each. Please specify which class you are scheduling in your request. These classes are provided free of charge, within our service area and can be booked online.*
*Normal coverage area includes the City of Riverside and surrounding cities. We also offer classes within Riverside County based on availability and resources.
