Bullying - Bullying happens every day. A child is bullied by others because of being perceived as different, weak or inferior. Studies show that children who are bullied are much more likely to develop depression, anxiety, sleep disruption, changes in eating patterns, physical complaints and decreased academic performance.

Be assertive.
Teaching children how to be assertive without resorting to aggressive behavior is a key part of teaching them how to stand up to bullies. Instead of encouraging your child to "fight back," show them how using their words and actions can stop a bully. This week, teach kids to clearly tell a bully, "I don't like what you're doing, please stop." If they continue, walk away.
