What are the signs your child is being bullied?
Signs your child is being bullied
As a parent, you are your childs number one advocate.
Even when you do everything you can to keep the lines of communication open with your child, they still may be afraid to come to you for help dealing with a bully.
Children may fear retribution for getting the bully in trouble or they feel embarrassed or ashamed.
Therefore you can not always just rest assured that if they have not told you there is not a problem if they have not told you of one.
As always, stay involved and supportive of your childs school and extra-curricular activities.
Stay informed of what they are doing and whom they are spending time with.
In addition, watch for these potential bullying warning signs:
The Bully: A Discussion and Activity Story Children's story and activity book on bullying. Illustrations can be used as a colouring book as bullying is discussed. Question and answer section for children and parent/caregivers.
Taking the Bully by the Horns. Self help book and website giving educators, parents and kids the skills needed to deal with bullies and school violence and maintain good strong healthy self esteem.
