Nationally, 1 in 7 students in Grades K-12 is either a bully or a victim of bullying. 71 percent of students report that incidences of bullying is a problem at their school. Bullying is a national issue and is also a local issue in the state of Alabama. Every year, Alabama students endure bullying and harassment in person and online.  Oftentimes adults do not know or recognize that their child is being bullied or that their child is bullying others.  When adults realize that bullying is a problem, they often do not know how to handle these issues.  Alabama Cooperative Extension Systems, has resources available to help you along the way. Through the efforts of Family and Child Development Extension Specialist, Dr. Adrienne M. Duke and the input of the FCD team, we have established a comprehensive resource for parents and guardians. All content is based on the latest research on bullying, provides helpful tips for addressing a range of bullying issues, and provides information on a program called Be SAFE that we offer to schools, after-school programs, and community organizations.
