Anti-Bullying and Internet Safety tips from Bakersfield police

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – Rachel Rivera with Bakersfield Police Department joined Sunrise to talk about an issue that has become more and more common in our schools: bullying. 

BPD has a special program for teens and parents with resources and tips on what to do if your child is being bullied in school or online. 

Rivera shared a list of tips for parents when their child is being bullied.

  • Keep open lines of communication with your child
  • Recognize that you set the ultimate example for your child
  • Learn your child’s school’s policies about bullying
  • Monitor your child’s cell phone/social media activity
  • Limit your child’s access to their cell phone if it’s becoming a problem, or if necessary, take the phone/technology away
  • Never assume that your child is “too good” or would “never do ____”. Even great kids make poor choices sometimes.

If parents or teens want more information, call BPD at 326-3022 or visit bakersfieldpd.us
