In the News: Parents Can Help Kids Stand Up To Bullying

According to a new study by NC State University and the University of South Carolina, young people who have good relationships and an open line of communication with their parents are most likely to try and prevent bullying before it even happens. Children who felt excluded or discriminated by their peers or teachers were less likely to stand up for victims who have been bullied. NC State psychologists Elan Hope and Kelly Lynn Mulvey were two of the study’s authors. International news outlets like and Yahoo Lifestyle are among those reporting on the research into bias-based bullying.
