- Using apps and video to combat and report bullying
- How student leaders can reduce bullying in their schools

and even about when kids are bullying -- or at least manipulating -- their parents.
To add to these resources, we have recently come across a very detailed and practical guide to policies and practices relating to bullying in the New York City Public Schools, prepared by Advocates for Children of New York (AFC), a wonderful nonprofit resource for New York City families.
AFC’s Guide to Preventing & Addressing Bullying was issued in December 2017 and includes specific procedures, links, and telephone numbers that can be used when children and families are struggling with bullying. Also included in the Guide are discussions about what constitutes bullying, what happens once a complaint is filed, and how bullying can be prevented.
This is a worthwhile reference for every public school family in New York City. .
