The Woburn Police Department's Student Resource Officers, along with the Joyce and Kennedy Middle School PTOs, are sponsoring a parents seminar Wednesday.

A special seminar on how to will be held Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the auditorium. 

The discussion, which will focus on current research and studies, is sponsored by the 's Student Resource Officers and the Joyce and 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."

For a bullying case, we should teach our children at home, how to respect other people, and never use words or action to scare others. Parents, we are in the fight of our lives for our children and their physical, emotional health. It is time to take a stand and start educating ourselves on what dangers are out there and in turn, start educating our children on how to deal with school bullying. I was reading this blog on anationofmoms and found an article that spoke of a service to protect my children. It said that if I followed the service on twitter, I would enter the drawing for 6 months free of service. Check out the article: http://anationofmoms.com/2011/08/protect-your-family-giveaway.html
