Bullying: What To Watch

Has your child suddenly had declining grades or unexplained injuries? Have they purposely been trying to avoid school? They could be the victims of bullying. “Bullying is a widespread problem among children, especially teenagers,” says Beth Nauert, M.D., a Texas pediatrician. “Bullying should always be taken very seriously by parents, educators, and the authorities.” BULLYING SIGNS Children who are bullied are repeatedly exposed to aggressive, negative actions on the part of one or more other persons, and have difficulty defending themselves, says Dr. Nauert. Some clear signs of bullying that parents should watch for include: • unexplainable injuries, • lost or destroyed clothing, books, electronics, or jewelry,

Helping Parents Understand the Signs

• • • • •

feeling sick or faking illness, changes in eating habit, difficulty sleeping or frequent nightmares, not wanting to go to school, running away from home. ACTION PLAN FOR PARENTS Because children who are bullied may be reluctant to talk about it, parents who suspect bullying should take immediate action to help their children, says Dr. Nauert. “Parents need to find out from their child who is doing the bullying, whether the bullying was verbal, physical, or cyberbullying, and where and when the bullying is happening,” she says. “They should then speak with their teacher, principal, school administrators, or local law enforcement.”

October is National Bullying Prevention Month
