Health Tip: Recognize Signs of Bullying

Emotional kids may be most vulnerable

(HealthDay News) -- A child who is picked on by another child is being bullied. It's important that parents understand when, how and why bullying occurs.

The American Academy of Pediatrics offers this information:

  • Children most often targeted by bullies tend to easily cry, give in or get angry.
  • Bullying may occur socially, verbally or physically. It can happen at school, via the Internet or anywhere an adult isn't watching.
  • Bullying is more than being teased. It's about controlling other children.
  • Bullying often happens in front of other children.
  • Talk to your child about bullying, including how to handle situations when being bullied or witnessing it.
