NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Two schools in Nashville have plans to address the issue of bullying before it becomes a problem.
On Tuesday the families from Taylor Stratton Elementary and Madison Middle school came together tonight to have an open discussion about bullying. Although counselors from both schools say it was not in response to a specific incident, they bullying is an issue that more and more students have to deal with.
"If someone is doing something to them repeatedly, constantly on a daily basis, and its making them feel uncomfortable then we consider that to be bullying and we take that very seriously," Lindsay Mosayebi, Madison Middle School Counselor.
Counselors at Madison Middle and Taylor Stratton came together Wednesday to become proactive against school bullying. They serve many of the same families and to want to have an open discussion about bullying before it becomes a problem here.
"We want to work with parents to make it stop," said Cedric Webber, Madison Middle School Counselor.
Together, they hope to work together to solve any problems if it arises. Students are told to first tell the bullies to stop. If that doesn't work- they are advised to tell an adult about the problem
At the presentation Wednesday, parents also received advice on how to spot the effects of bullying at home. There were also presentations from various guests including officers from the Madison Precinct, representatives from Metro Schools and the district attorney's office.
