When a person or group purposely engages in actions intended to harm someone else emotionally or physically.
Bullying often consists of a series of cruel acts
repeated over time.
Children being bullied need and deserve adult intervention and help.
It is important to note that peer conflict is a normal part of a child’s life experience and all children will experience conflict at some point during their childhood and adolescence.
As children learn the give and take of friendship, group cooperation, and social interaction, conflict naturally occurs. Age-typical conflicts arise and can sometimes be resolved independently, and at other times adult intervention is required.
“Children who bully are loners.”
Research indicates that children who bully are not socially isolated, rather they have an easier time making friends and typically have a small group of friends who support or encourage their bullying.
“Children who bully have low self-esteem.”
Research indicates that children who bully have average to above-average self-esteem.
“Children will outgrow bullying.”
Unless someone intervenes, the bullying will likely continue, in some cases, grow into violence and other serious problems. Children who consistently bully others often continue their aggressive behavior through adolescence and into adulthood.
Be aware of changes in your child’s behavior or attitudes. Bullied children often give signals that something is wrong, such as:
Focus on your child. Be supportive and gather information about the problem.
Be a good bystander
