Is Your Child A Bully? How Would You Know?

As kids get older and are not home as much, how would you know if they were becoming a bully? Bullying is rampant now with cyber bullying adding a whole new dimension of harm to innocent kids. Perhaps because of the availability of cell phones and computers, kids find it easier to bully other kids as they can do it anonymously.

It is important to recognize changes in the attitude and behaviour of your kids as this might suggest that they are either being bullied or being a bully themselves. If you notice a sudden change in the way your child interacts with you, it is important to look a little deeper. Are they now spending more time with friends, more time on their cell phone or are they now refusing to spend time with your family? As Gordon Neufeld writes in his book, “Hold Onto Your Kids”, ensuring your child remains connected to their family instead of their peers is crucial in helping them grow up with a strong sense of self. This strong sense of who they are and what they believe is what will give them strength to stand up to criticism and not to resort to belittling others in order to inflate their own ego.

Children with any type of difference or disability are particularly prone to being bullied. This is one of the many reasons to address your child’s food sensitivities. If they have behaviour or learning challenges, they may be picked on because other kids simply don’t understand their situation. Even some of the physical symptoms such as tics and twitches can be difficult in a social environment for your child. As well, some children experience neurological symptoms such as anger, belligerence, and low frustration levels, which can lead them to bully other kids.

This article contains some behaviours and clues that your child might be heading down the precarious road of becoming a bully so I thought it was worthwhile sharing. Have a read and see what you think.
