How do I know if my child is being bullied?

Most parents mistakenly feel that if their child is being bullied, they’ll be the first to know. But this is rarely the case. Children who are bullied often feel too ashamed or afraid to speak out. For this reason, you should familiarize yourself with the possible warning signs that your child may be being bullied.

  • Loss of appetite
  • Insomnia
  • Poor academic performance
  • Discontinued interest in school or related activities
  • Sadness or depression
  • Bruises

If you discover your child is being bullied, notify their teacher, principal, or contact the county school board if you feel the situation is not being cared for adequately.
