How to spot signs of bullying .
- Look out for behavioural changes, for example, your child becomes more wary, more nervous, and generally upset in themselves. If your child becomes very distressed about having the ‘wrong’ schoolbag or the ‘wrong’ hairstyle, then it might indicate that there is disapproval emanating from their peers. Some children can become very hard on themselves and self-deprecating
- these kids are simply repeating what is being said to them by the bullies.
- The child begins second-guessing their every move and they can very soon begin to feel worthless and inadequate. A red flag would be if the parent notices that the child’s belongings are often damaged or missing.
