Bullying occurs in all walks of life, especially in schools. By being aware of basic signs of bullying, we can assist our children in reporting the behavior and solving interpersonal problems in the school. Fear of going to school is one of the most common signs of bullying. Additional signs may include bullying including: increased anxiety, faking illness, changes in eating habits, decline in grades, unexplainable injuries, lost or destroyed belongings and loss of friends. Keep lines of communication open with your child!
