Just ASK your kids:
-“Do you know what a bully is?”

Sit and talk to them. Show real interest in them.
Set them up to succeed. Find something they can do and praise them for it!
Step in and help. Let them see you as being there for them.
Make sure they know that home is safe. Home is shelter. Home is absolute.
