Parents often feel helpless when they find out their child is being bullied in school.

There are actually three basic types of abuse – physical, emotional and verbal. Some children are subject to bullying because of religion, race, sex or ability. Aggressive behavior in order to intentionally hurt another person, either mentally or physically is considered bullying. Bullies try to gain power over individuals by these methods.

 

Parents should take notice if they notice strange behavior in their children.

 

Children who have been targets of bullying can suffer from depression, anxiety, loneliness, low self-esteem, and increased susceptibility to illness. There is also a strong link from bullying that can lead to suicide. Bullies normally have personalities that are authoritarian, and a need to control and dominate. Often bullying behavior starts in childhood. As a child matures behavior patterns will also mature. Bullies often desire the support of others. In school bullying can occur most often in bathrooms, hallway, recess, school buses, and PE. Quite often a group of students will take advantage of isolating one student, and will gain the loyalty of bystanders who do not want to risk becoming the next victim. Teasing and taunting usually come before actual physical bullying. Some bullying behavior may consist of verbal or written abuse, name calling, physical abuse, and exclusion from social activities. Some of the physical abuse include biting, scratching, pulling hair, punching, kicking, slapping, choking, stabbing, and beating. Since the Columbine massacre in 1999, bullying and school violence has gained increasing attention. It is estimated that 60-80% of children are bullied in school. 160,000 children choose choose to stay home from school for fear of being bullied in school. Childhood attempted suicides are often caused by bullying. Bullying is particularly dominate in the age group of 9-18.
Girls tend to bully in verbal forms, while boys tend to bully in physical form. Girls often choose as their victims, other students who are overweight, facial appearance, not fitting in, and academic status. Boys will often bully others who are physically weak, short tempered, clothes they wear, and who their friends are. Often bullies are not born with this characteristic. Families that have physical abuse in their home is the result for children who become bullies. If your child is sensitive, unhappy, cautious, anxious, quiet, parents should be aware that they can become the target of bullies. Bullies know these children are an easy target. Parents should be in close contact with their child’s school, and teachers to keep a tight control on this growing problem.
