1) BULLYING: If bullied, talk to a trusted adult, be persistent until something is done, write down all that happens and is said, telephoning Child-line is an option; do something to stop it by asking for help. Befriend younger children to buffer them against being bullied. Talk about bullying and make your own anti-bullying posters. Do something co-operative such as putting on a play about how to keep a school bully-free.
2) SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENT: Fatherless children are more likely to drop out of school. Women with degrees earn approximately 25% more than women without degrees. Higher quality childcare produces children who are better at maths, thinking skills, and they have less attention problems.
3) FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS: To build resilience, trust and attachment are important in the child (Masten, 1998). Similarly, it is important for an adolescent to seek help from adults other than parents, for resilience-building (Fonagy, 1984). The ability to make and keep a few good friends is also very important (Segal, 1986).
