Siblings and bullying

We’re looking at siblings and bullying this month as it’s Anti-Bullying Week during 11th – 15th November 2019. Bullying can happen to anyone and it is always wrong. Siblings say that sometimes they get bullied at school or online because their families are different or because of how their brothers or sisters behave. They also worry if their disabled brothers and sisters are being bullied. We have some really useful information on our website on how to get help if you are being bullied as well as things you can do if you are finding school life tough.

Siblings also tell us that they can get bullied by their brother or sister. This can make siblings feel frightened and that they aren’t safe at home. This is not OK – it’s really important to get help if this is happening to you. We have information on what to do if your sister or brother hurts you and how to get help with staying safe.

Get in touch through our YoungSibs chat forum and let us know what helped you if you’ve been bullied and what advice you would give to other siblings.
