The Zero-Tolerance Plan

We asked experts what parents can do to stop antigay bullying.

Check yourself. Take a look at your own prejudices, stereotypes, and language, and educate yourself about diversity issues.

Discuss values. Tell your child that even when you disagree with people, it's important to treat them with respect.

Have a plan. Encourage your child to stand up for bullied classmates and to tell an adult when bullying occurs.

Demand respect. If your kid's the bully, make it clear his behavior is unacceptable and there will be consequences.

Push for a policy. Find out if your school district specifically forbids antigay bullying. If it doesn't, file a complaint.
