The discussion, which will focus on current research and studies, is sponsored by the Woburn Police Department's Student Resource Officers and the Joyce and Kennedy middle schools' Parent-Teacher organizations.
"I think this will be very informative for all parents, teachers, staff and other interested parties," said Woburn Police Officer Anthony Imperioso.
The presentation will discuss how parents can partner with schools to prepare and protect children against bullying, including cyber-bullying on the Internet.
According to information from Massachusetts Aggression Reduction Center, who will be presenting the Wednesday seminar, "We’ll discuss how school problems and cyber-issues impact friendships, and what to discuss with your child to reduce the risk that he or she will become involved. Bullying and cyber-bullying can impact growing teens emotionally, academically, and can result in long-standing problems."
