How To Know if Your Child Is Being Bullied
More info for National Stop Bullying Week - Signs that your child may be getting bullied:
* Loss of friends
* A drop in grades
* A Loss of interest in activities they previously enjoyed
* Torn clothing
* Unexplained brusies
* A Need for extra money or supplies
If you think your child may be getting bullied, or they tell you they are, talk to their teacher about it. If the teacher doesn't act, talk to the principal. Teach them nonviolent ways to deal with bullies, like walking away, playing with friends or talking it out.
