Is your child suddenly sullen, withdrawn, or seeming to avoid contact with you?
Have you observed marked changes in his behaviors and personality?
Is she afraid to ride the school bus or reluctant to go to school?
These are just a few of the possible warning signs that your child is being bullied. (Bullying is defined as any unwanted, aggressive behavior that is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time.)
Repeated bullying may cause significant emotional harm and can erode a child’s self-worth and mental health. Whether bullying is verbal, physical or relational, the long-term effects can be equally harmful.
