DELAWARE - Governor Markell helped to officially launch DEleteBullying.org, a new online resource to highlight and support bullying prevention efforts in the First State.
The website provides information and helpful resources for children, parents and educators regarding how to address and prevent instances of bullying.
For parents, the website discusses, among other things, how bullying is defined in Delaware, signs of bullying, how to know if your child is a target of bullying, and how to report it, both to school authorities and the Attorney General's bullying reporting hotline.
For teens, the website addresses what bullying looks and feels like and how teens might handle it. It reminds teens they are not alone, and that with the help of their peers and trusted adults, they can put an end to bullying.
The website includes helpful
information specifically for LGBTQ youth, and a number of resources, both
state and national, on peer relationship building and other helpful resources.
