“While it is true that sometimes we tend to care for the child who has been affected by the bullyingwe also have to attend to the student who mistreats his classmate, because something must also be happening with him for him to have these behaviors […]. Work must be done on good treatment, tolerance, and solidarity among students in a transversal way, ”he said.

Starting from that point, the coordinator of the Dolphin Program Peru Chapter specified that “although there are platforms where the bullying casesI think there should also be a record of how to prevent it.”

“As a test, I applied a technological tool called ‘Díde’, which is from Spain, and there came out -within the 35 indicators- the indices that detect bullying. If the Government had the instruments to detect these cases, it could begin to guide the classes on the subject, ”he explained.

Along these lines, he stressed that in this way students “A healthy coexistence is instilled in them, a human relationship that builds respect, especially considering that we are all different and this should not mean mistreatment.”

“You have to do powerful work on valuing differences, respecting each one of the students. Additionally, train teachersto families, so that they can identify these cases of bullying […]. A recovery space is needed, where they can make their emotional discharges, teach children that there are no bad emotions, that the important thing is that they learn to guide them, “said Távara.

Finally, he emphasized that the centers educational they should not work alone. “They have to be closely related to the other ministries so that they can provide the right service,” he said.

“If an alliance is made with the health entitiesI think that this will be able to be better oriented and attended to.
