What if Your Child IS the One Showing Bullying Behavior? PACER Center ACTion Information Sheets. PHP-c109
PACER Center
The word "bullying" often conjures up an image of a schoolyard scene, with a big, intimidating student towering over a small, cowering child. However, that's just one of the many faces of children who bully. Another face of someone who bullies might be that of one's own child. Surprised? Many parents are. Often they have no idea that their child is bullying other children. Yet recognizing the situations--and acting to change the behavior--is vitally important in making the future safer for all children. Here's why. Children who bully can be affected as much as those they target. Statistically, they are significantly more likely than others to experience school failure, depression, violence, crime, and other problems. The message is clear: Bullying is too important to ignore. This document provides information about children bullying others and what parents can do to help, including how to stop a child from bullying.
