School is not a friendly, welcoming place for a child who is teased and bullied. A child who is worried about what's going to happen to her or him at school will have trouble concentrating, begin to dislike school, and may want to avoid going altogether. Children who are teased and bullied often develop physical symptoms, such as headaches and stomachaches. Emotionally, they can become sad, withdrawn, anxious, and depressed. In a classroom, teasing and bullying create a climate that makes it hard to teach and even harder to learn. However, by establishing a classroom environment that fosters respect, kindness, and cooperation, and by engaging in a proactive curriculum to prevent teasing and bullying, teachers can make school a friendly, welcoming place for all children. In this article, the authors discuss on how preschool teachers could help young children address teasing and bullying.
