Anti-bullying and behaviour expert The Scary Guy talks to parents about how to spot the signs of bullying, and the strategies parents can use to support their children through it.
Heavily tattooed, and with multiple piercings, The Scary Guy uses his own appearance as a tool for tackling bullying.
Here, he stresses the importance of parents making time to listen to their child. On a visit to Macclesfield High School, he meets Nathan, a student who has been bullied in the past.
After a one-to-one session, where he hears what Nathan went though, they go back to Nathan's house to talk to his parents about how they supported Nathan through his ordeal.
During the session, it's revealed that the bullying started earlier than they thought, and Scary explains this is often the case - bullied children don't talk for fear of escalating the situation. Scary then offers the parents strategies to enable them to talk more openly with their children, and to deal with any future bullying.
