Homeschooling Resources at Your Fingertips

Bullying is more than physical

It’s no secret that bullying has become a major problem in the United States. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), 1 in 3 students in the U.S. said they have been bullied at school.

And thanks to anonymous social media networks, bullies have entirely new platforms to make fun of others and even have those insults go viral, all without fear of reprisal.

Thankfully, the national conversation about bullying is growing as more and more parents push to make public schools safer for their children. However, this groundswell of support has resulted in an over diagnosis of what bullying is and isn’t and a misconception that it can only occur in an out-of-home school setting. Therefore, we wanted to create a simple guide to outline exactly what bullying entails, and what parents can do to stop it.

Parents, has a bully ever stood in the way of your child’s future? How did you take back control of their education?

Hello everyone! I’m Jessica Parnell — mom, homeschool evaluator, teacher, and CEO of Bridgeway Academy. In my 20+ years of experience as a homeschool mom and evaluator, I have had the privilege of meeting homeschoolers that take a variety of approaches to their education. It is their many stories and successes that inspire me in my own homeschooling and I love to pass on the knowledge that I have gained from them to other homeschooling families. The one constant that always remains true is that there’s no such thing as a “cookie cutter child.” Each child is fearfully and wonderfully made and as a result, learns and functions differently. It’s our job to ensure that we’re raising each child to fulfill their individual purpose and when we can teach in a way that inspires them, we are on our way to homeschool success. When I’m not writing or teaching my children, I like to ski, write and participate in triathlons. I graduated from Kutztown University with a Bachelor of Science in Education and a Masters in English and I am currently pursuing a degree in Neuroleadership.
