7 ways you can help your child get up intimidation

1) be aware of the signs that your child may be being bullied, such as frequent headaches, stomachaches or not wanting to go to school.

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.

2) Talk to your child about bullying.

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.
