Only in recent years has bullying among children really been given a lot of attention by school administrators, law makers, law enforcement and the media. It’s an age-old problem that sometimes ends in tragedy. In many cases kids may not know that bullying is wrong, and in other cases they know it is wrong and do it to make themselves feel superior or to impress others. Bullying can create a tremendous amount of stress for the victims, and it’s not uncommon for kids who are bullied to keep the problem to themselves because they are embarrassed or afraid. Even if your child is being bullied and does not make it known to others at home, there are signs you can watch for that may indicate there is a problem.
