No one should be intimidated, especially his son. Although bullying can occur at any age, it seems to be especially common during the years of primary and secondary. But there are ways you can help your child get up to bullying, says Dr. Rodd Stein, one of our pediatricians Westchester Health Pediatrics, in a very insightful blog is hoped that the parents will find useful.
Bullying is a form of aggression where one or more children bullied repeatedly harass or abuse another child he can not defend himself / herself. Girls who bully usually do emotionally, while children who bully often do in both physical and emotional directions. But if they are men or women, the aggressors seek power at the expense of another.
Also, ask your child that he or she has lunch with or play on the playground, and the names of his / her friends. If you feel that something is wrong, contact the appropriate administrator at the school.
Many children who are being bullied open in the right environment, such as car or a similar place where you have little contact eye to eye. The most important thing is to listen. Do not promise you will not tell anyone, because you may need to intervene. Reassure your child that you will do your best not to worsen the problem.
Help your child to react calmly and confidently to mock. For example, your child can practice saying “Leave me alone” and then walk away. Help he / she understands that the answer to physical aggression or insults usually only make the problem worse.
This can be a very good way to make new friends (and avoid intimidate / attackers). Also, having several friends and interests can increase the confidence of a child and make him / her less likely to be intimidated.
This will include sharing, empathy, compassion, humor and loyalty.
Very important to know :. Bullying is less likely to occur near adults
Many children feel ashamed or afraid to tell an adult about bullying. They may think that the participation of an adult only worsen the problem, but in reality, the silence only favors the aggressor. Tell someone about what is happening is the first step to stop it.
