The toolkit is available at http://www.hazelden.org/olweusparent. Hazelden is the publisher of the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program (OBPP). This program is based on more than 35 years of research and has been proven to prevent or reduce bullying throughout a school system by 50% or more. OBPP takes a comprehensive approach to address the issue on four levels, including the individual, classroom, school and community levels. Parents can be strong advocates for a bullying prevention program, like OBPP, in their children's schools.

"National Bullying Prevention Awareness Week is the perfect opportunity for parents to learn more about bullying prevention and what they can do to help their children with this common problem," said Kris Van Hoof-Haines, Hazelden vice president. "All too often parents experience a child returning home from a negative incident on the playground or on the bus and are unsure how to handle the situation. We believe this toolkit will prepare parents to become catalysts for change so that schools can implement district-wide efforts to create more caring learning communities for children."
