Cartoon Network conducted a study with Opinion Matters, which showed that half of parents with children aged 6-12 years surveyed in the UAE are aware that their child has been bullied previously.
To raise awareness about the issue, the ‘CN Buddy Network’ campaign is running a tailored workshop for mothers, in partnership with Dr. Haneen Jarrar, Child Psychologist with extensive experience in cognitive & clinical neuroscience, where mothers can get the chance to know more about bullying, how to deal with their child if they are being bullied and ways to support them.
The free workshop takes place on Sunday, November 3rd, 11am to 12:30pm at Zabeel House by Jumeriah, The Greens.
If you would like to attend, you can RSVP here.
