Is My Child a Victim of Bullying?

Here are some questions to ask yourself:

1. Does my child fear going to school? Is my child anxious about school? Is this a new behavior?

2. Have I noticed any bruises on my child? If so, when I ask about the bruises what is the response?

3. Does my child seem anxious or upset after using the computer or other electronic devices?

4. Does my child have friends? Who are they? Have I seen how they interact with each other?

5. Is my child submissive or withdrawn with other children?

6. Does my child talk about not being liked or wanting to "get back" at someone for being mean?
