A common message I try to teach kids at schools is that parents and kids need to have an open discourse about bullying and stress. Kids need to know that they can talk to their parents about anything, BUT, and this is key, if they don't feel comfortable about a certain topic, here is a list of people that you can talk to. Having that social network in place before something terrible happens is key to surviving. Talk to your parents or kids and come up with a plan. Don't wait for stress or bullying to build up to where someone feels too trapped to do anything other than act out against themselves or someone else.
