Your child may be a class Bully – The three things you need to know now
Expert Author Jane Thursday
Schools are now much more active against bullying, and rightly so, as a seemingly minor incidents of intimidation can lead to serious security incidents later. The parents were not surprised to learn that bullying exists even in the elementary grades, but they are often shocked and defensive, even when the label is applied to their own children.
A. Your child does not seem to be friends.
Does your child have a problem to be friends or have poor social skills? Sometimes a child can lead to bullying, because it’s the only kind of social interaction that seems to attract attention from others. In other cases, the child is frightened of constant bullying of other children in keeping their distance as much as possible. If so, for your child, look for resources such as school psychologist, social organizations, or friend of a great program to help children reconnect with others. Also, be wary of your child to make friends with other bullies, bullies and sometimes find strength in numbers. Studies show that peers can have a child as much or more influence on a child than his or her parents.
Two. Your child’s teacher mentioned it to you.
Teachers do not throw words around a little bully. Schools are now much more active against bullying, and rightly so, as a seemingly minor incidents of intimidation can lead to serious security incidents later. Increased attention is actually opened the proverbial can of worms in the schools, as many of these incidents are not to be reporting actual abuse cases. Thus, if the teacher poses the question, take it seriously and will be active until the bad habits that your child is more established. The same is true if the child was in trouble, the director’s office. The official line discipline is usually the last step in the line of least interference.
Three. Class your child slip.
Major once told me that once she checked the current class of students who received a formal discipline in the direction of the average elementary school. Each student who was in his office this week, was also performed poorly in their studies. Sudden landing on student achievement may be indicator of potential problems in a child’s life. In any case, it’s time for a simultaneous conversation with your child about school work and social behavior.
Help the child overcome the excessive aggression or other harmful social behavior is all about finding patterns of behavior, observing extreme events, and considering all the logical possibilities before drawing conclusions. Look for clues that your child exhibits bullying behavior and to make contact with the teacher and other supports to the behavior of the out of control.
