Bullying and Prevention

   PRINT

When your kids go off to daycare, play at the park or spend their days in school, you want to know that they're safe and comfortable. When you hear about bullying, you probably think, "That won't happen to my child!" but you never know. 

Would you spot the signs that your kids are being bullied? Many little ones won't just come out and say it's happening. They may not recognize that they're being bullied, or they just don't want to get anyone in trouble. Bullying can even increase after a victim tells an adult. Learn about what to do if your child is being bullied so you are prepared to handle the situation if it arises. 

You should also know how to tell if your children are the ones doing the bullying. It can be hard to admit that your sweet little tykes might be causing problems at school or on the playground, but it's your job to notice if this is happening so you can put a stop to it. You'll need to talk with your children to hear their side of the story and then teach them to react differently to conflict, in ways that don't involve physical violence or name calling.

Parents can always talk with school supervisors, teachers or daycare leaders to learn how their kids act when away from mom and dad. This may help you understand if your kids are being bullied or if they're being bullies themselves.
