Bullying Signs: How Parents Recognize Problems and Create Solutions

Child Comforting SMALL
 
"My Powerful Mind Is Thoughtful and
Kind."

 

WHY DO SOME KIDS BULLY OTHERS? Research says that bullying can give kids a sense of power and prestige. The bully wants to have others think he's important. When he hurts kids, he feels dominant and strong. It's hard for bullies to give up such feelings.

 

Some bullies come from abusive homes and treat others like they have been treated. 

 

Research also says that bullies pick on weak fearful kids. Children who are socially awkward, lack self-control, hyperactive, and don't fit in, become easy targets.

In today's article, How Parents Turn Bullies into Caring Kids, you can help both the bully and the bullied child. You will find:

 

  •  7 signs your child could be a bully-follower
  • 3 questions smart kids should ask about bullies
  • 10 parent and child discussions about bullying
  • 10 anti-bullying slogans for your child's self-talk

The Positive Side of Gift Giving

Help your child give gifts to others like coupons that promise he will do something nice for the other person. Then help him set a date for keeping his word. He’ll feel good and the receiver will too.

Of course, you still want to surprise your child with meaningful presents. Consider choosing gifts that give your child what’s most special, your presence and your time (from, my friend, Carol Josel). Why? Because having fun together creates a close-knit family bond and beautiful memories.
