The media tends to glamorize incidents that are extreme in nature and lack rationalization. One hot topic issue that has been trending in legal circles is bullying. This is because bullying in today’s world can happen not just on a school bus, playground or classroom, but at home via social media and text messaging at any hour or the day or night. In fact, even incidents of parent fueled fighting has created a stir in the news as bullying has really ramped up in intensity and occurrence.
Sending your children off to school for the first time can stir up many emotions. While there are certainly new challenges ahead, you can take several preventative measures to ensure it is a smooth transition for both of you. Making sure they are up-to-date with their shots, looking out for warning signs of lice (and applying the appropriate hair lice treatment), and identifying any warning signs of bullying are just a few things you should be aware of when sending your little ones off to the classroom.
