Bullying is an epidemic in our society that must stop. Every time we turn around a child has to deal with defending themselves from being victimized by other classmates. Enough is enough and something must be done about it. When we look at the past, children were usually teased, and you may get the occasional fistfight. Now, they will post embarrassing pictures online or do things that would cause the other child to lose their life. Kisling Nestico & Redick have taken several lawsuits that deal with children who have taken their own lives behind being verbally and physically attacked by other students.

Kisling Nestico & Redick and other advocates put together the National Bullying Prevention Month to raise awareness to keep children safe and to have schools enforce policies that are supposed to support the consequences of students who choose to bully other students. This is a time for parents and schools to come together to show that they care. If each student felt as if they are important and can reach out to talk to a trusted adult about whatever issue they are facing or their insecurities, there would be less bullying. Kisling Nestico & Redick believe that it’s time for schools to really look into the issue so that more students are seeking the worst alternative to deal with being bullied.

Kisling Nestico & Redick put out a list that shows the signs of a child that is dealing with being bullied. You as a parent should look for bruising and destruction of their property. If their money is coming up missing or they are starving because they are not eating lunch at school, chances are they are bullied. At the same time, if your child is doing the bullying, there are several signs you should look at. If your child is coming home with items or money that you didn’t give them or loves to see other children get hurt, you need to find out what your child is up to. Kisling Nestico & Redick wants everyone to step up to prevent bullying from taking place. Read More.
