Signs of Bullying and seeking help for a Child or Teenager who is being Bullied.
Most children at some time have been teased or have had difficult times with their friends. But when another child is tormenting either physically, verbally or in other psychological ways it needs to be dealt with. Increasingly, bullies are taking to new media via emails, chat rooms, instant messages, social networking sites and texting to taunt and bully others – which can extend the comments to a wider group of children – increasing the suffering for the child being bullied.
Often Children don't want to share what is happening as they can be humiliated or fear that you may make it worse. Common signs that your child maybe being bullied are:
- Stomach aches or headaches caused by the stress
- Not sleeping well or nightmares
- Being more grump or bad tempered than usual
- Over-reacting to situations and taking it out on siblings
- Belongings being damaged or going missing
- Decline in concentration, focus and attainment at school
- Worrying about going to school or not wanting to go
- Change in friendships or normal routines with friends
