Bullying

Every parent worries at some point about their child. However, if you suspect your child is being bullied, it is natural to feel confused, angry and guilty.

If you notice your child acting differently, avoiding school, coming home with physical injuries, performing less well at school or generally not behaving as normal, it is possible they could be being bullied.

Bullying can present itself in different forms, from physical bullying to verbal and psychological bullying. There is an increase in bullying using email and text messaging.

You may also wonder whether your child is a bully and this can be equally upsetting and distressing for parents.

If you have concerns that a young person you care about is being bullied or is bullying other children talk to them and try and find out what is happening in their lives. Further help and advice can be found using the related links below.
