SCHOOL BULLYING
AFFECTING YOUR CHILD?

WE CAN HELP!

Are you distraught because you’ve discovered that your child is the victim of school bullying? Not sure what to do to correct the problem? Do you have the urge to lash out at the parents of the bullying child or children? Lay aside your feelings of worry and distress about your child’s situation. There is something positive you can do to handle this delicate situation and prevent your child from suffering deep emotional scars that can stay with him or her for the rest of their lives.

I am going to give you some insight into school bullying that is based on new research.

First of all, let’s establish what a bully is exactly.

When you think of school bullying, you probably have visions of a boy who is diminutive in size getting beat up by a bigger boy. A bully is not necessarily a male and violence isn’t always their modus operandi. According to the National Association of School Psychologists, a bully is someone who “directs physical, verbal, or psychological aggression or harassment toward others, with the goal of gaining power over or dominating another individual.”

What makes someone become a bully? There are several factors that can cause a child to develop into a bully, all of which are associated with the child’s environment. The child’s family situation plays a large part. Is the child a victim of parental bullying? If so, they are at a higher risk of becoming a bully. In addition to family, factors relating to school environment and the peer group that the child chooses to associate with can also contribute to a child becoming a bully.

Did you know that as much as half the student body at any given school experiences some form of bullying?

It’s true. Unless parents become involved and come together to find ways of resolving the issue, school bullying is going to continue.

School bullying should not be taken lightly because it affects everyone involved. Here are just a few of the effects of school bullying:

  • Victims of school bullying are often traumatized emotionally
  • School bullies tend to perpetuate the behavior into adulthood and resort to crime
  • Parents may feel they are at fault for the behavior

You may feel helpless, but there are some steps you can take when you discover that your child is the victim of school bullying.
