Bullying at School

With school back in full swing, and particularly for children at school for their first year, all parents should keep an eye and ear out to reassure themselves that their kids' social life at school is going OK. Social skills are not a given, and bullying is sadly very common.

Children do not usually tell their parents when they are being bullied. Usually it is because they are embarrassed or scared because of threats from the bully that they will suffer the consequences if they tell anyone. If your child tells you he is being bullied it is very important that you take him seriously.

Check out Monicka's article on how to help your child if he is being bullied.

Happy parenting,
