I was speaking to a parent this past week who was feeling awful for not having listened to her child.
You see, her child had been bullied for a while. She thought that her incidents were not that bad. Then, months later she found out that her child was experiencing extreme symptoms from her bullying experiences.
Her child was having panic attacks, couldn’t sleep, and got physically sick often. Her child kept asking to stay home and then one day, her child just refused to go to school.
After long talks and some therapy sessions, this mom found out that the bullying experiences had been very consistent over the course of a year. Furthermore, she found out that teachers had been part of the bullying as well.
Sadly, this happens. That’s why it’s important for parents to ask as many questions as possible to find out what kids are really saying.
There are keywords to listen for. There are ways to ask the same question to get the answers you’re looking for and you can also pay close attention to signs of bullying.
If you don’t know about keywords, how to ask questions, or the signs of different types of bullying, get a copy of “YOUR GUIDE TO BULLYING PREVENTION” through my website.
You won’t regret it! nd if you need more help, schedule a consultation with me here.
Remember, it’s never too late to inform yourself. You need this information before, during, and after any bullying incident.
Most kids NEVER tell an adult that they're being bullied because they try to handle the situation alone or they fear that telling an adult might make matters worse.
