One of the serious problems facing parents today is dealing with bullying of their children. Bullying can happen anywhere and have lasting effects on an individual’s self-esteem. To help Williamson County parents learn how to recognize the warning signs that their child is being bullied, or that their child might be bullying others, the Patricia Hart Society has scheduled a “Lunch & Learn” with Rodger Dinwiddie of STARS (Students Taking A Right Stand). STARS, a United Way partner agency, provides prevention programs through the schools to reduce risk factors threatening students’ safety, school success and their futures.
This free seminar is open to anyone and will be held on Friday, Oct. 7th at 12:00 noon in the offices of United Way of Williamson County, 209 Gothic Court, Suite 107 in the Cool Springs area. Bring your own lunch and come to find out about resources that will be useful to you against bullying and how you can help if you suspect someone you know of being bullied face-to-face or even through hurtful text messages or online. Space is limited so reservations are required. Contact Debby Rainey with United Way at 615-771-2312 to indicate your interest in attending.
