Polk County, MN — The Polk County Sheriff’s Office is taking active steps to spread awareness on the dangers of bullying among youngsters. The department travels to schools within the county and puts on presentations for students. Recently Chief Deputy Mike Norland and Deputy Heath Hanson joined KKCQ Radio to spread awareness.
The first point that Deputy Hanson brought up is that no parent ever wants to admit that their child is a bully. And there is a pre-conceived notion that children act like their parents and that’s rarely the case.
Of course, cyber bullying is another form of bullying and sometimes can be more dangerous than physical bullying. Chief Deputy Norland offers a few tips that parents can follow to stay on top of your child’s activity on social media.
If your child is being bullied or is acting as the bully and you are unfamiliar with what you should be doing in the situation, you can contact the Polk County Sheriff’s office and they will be happy to help.
