Parents acted out skits to illustrate ways Livorno Unit School students could prevent and overcome bullying at a anti-bully rally. Children joined in by signing an anti-bullying pledge

This week on Noon Edition, we’ll discuss bullying among adolescents. Indiana schools are working to prevent bullying, but many incidents fly under the radar.

School officials and youth advocates say many parents are unsure how to respond to incidents, and students are hesitant to tell on their peers. We’ll talk with our panelists about monitoring and responding to bullying behavior.
