(HealthDay News) — A child who is picked on by another child is being bullied. It’s important that parents understand when, how and why bullying occurs.
The American Academy of Pediatrics offers this information:
- Children most often targeted by bullies tend to easily cry, give in or get angry.
- Bullying may occur socially, verbally or physically. It can happen at school, via the Internet or anywhere an adult isn’t watching.
- Bullying is more than being teased. It’s about controlling other children.
- Bullying often happens in front of other children.
- Talk to your child about bullying, including how to handle situations when being bullied or witnessing it.
