"I think we all have a role in protecting children from bullying and to teach those who are bullies to be responsible for their behavior. We all need to act. No one should just stand by. Involved parents and adults can really make a difference."

"Pre-emptive lines of communication should be open between parents and children, counselors and students ... Combine that with a no-tolerance policy at school and home — that way we’re attacking the problem from both ends."

"Parents must demonstrate real interest in the lives of their children ... Teachers must develop professional relationships that emphasize mentoring ... Students must be tolerant of individuals whose backgrounds ... opinions and interests appear to be different."
