How to deal with a complaint about a younger child. Tell your child calmly what they are accused of and ask for an explanation. Ask the head teacher if your child is the only one accused of bullying. Ask the head teacher what strategy he/she can introduce to deal with the problem. Explain to the child that if he/she calls people names, deliberately hurts them or takes their friends away this is bullying and not fun. Ask if supervision can be stepped up at the time the bullying is said to be happening.
