Bullying is a common experience for many children and adolescents. Surveys indicate that as many as half of all children are bullied at some time during their school years, and at least 10% are bullied on a regular basis. Bullying behavior can be physical or verbal. Boys tend to use physical intimidation or threats, regardless of the gender of their victims. Bullying by girls is more often verbal, usually with another girl as the target. Children who are bullied experience real suffering that can interfere with their social and emotional development, as well as their school performance. Children and adolescents who bully thrive on controlling or dominating others. If you suspect your child is bullying others, it's important to seek help for him or her as soon as possible. If you suspect your child may be the victim of bullying ask him or her to tell you what's going on.
