Just need your input on how to structure training in order for all volunteers to be exposed to this bullying case study?
We are aware that bullying is out of hand and I realized that when reading your post it gave confirmation to my previous post. I believe that before parents can be volunteers for conducting observation some type of screening or questionnaire should be administered. Reflection is an important factor throughout the process and definitely must be made to use as a reference. As you stated if changes are necessary after reflection this should teak place before revisiting the situation. This simply gives an opportunity to determine during the observation possible reasons for the behavior that is taking place. The changes allow a person to work to and find resolutions for the problem at hand. As your questions state what if any training has been given, and should parents be involved in this situation at home. Working primarily in Early Childhood Education for the past 20 years there are sometimes bullies at this age. Sometime you will have children just go and tell the parents that someone did something to them but it is mostly harmless. I do have behaviors in the class and children that have IEP's, but I can say that it is managed well. I also have several techniques and lessons that I teach that are directly related to hitting, kicking, inappropriate touching (could be hitting), yelling or screaming at friends or simply hurting them for no obvious reason. However, some of these lessons are reinforced daily and throughout the say. The children even have small visuals with few words to narrow down what I have taught to the entire group. These small reminders are in carious location around the classroom for them to access freely. During my parent orientation I also had the opportunity to explain and show the parents the different lessons that I teach that are part of keeping my safe environment. All in all I don't think parent would provide the most accurate information. In addition, many entities of the agency are confidential and if a parent volunteers or considers observing there are steps that must be taken with the agency before proceeding regardless of the situation.
