Bullying: Signs a child is being bullied

Kids don't always feel comfortable telling their parents when they are being bullied and certainly don't always ask for help, which means you need to be able to recognize the signs your child is being bullied.

The telltale clues

Parents want nothing more than to protect their children from harm. Here are the signs things are escalating

Your kid is a loner

If your child is acting detached from things that once brought them joy, it might because they don’t know who to turn to for help, so they turn in on themselves instead.

Doesn’t want to bring lunch

It’s the classic “they took my lunch money” concept, but believe the narrative. This really does happen.

Unnaturally emotional

Your child has trouble expressing their feelings because what they’re going through at school is slowly messing with their psyche.

Seems eager to fight

Their instinct is to fight because children need an outlet, sometimes a punching bag, to channel their aggression and to express their frustration.
