    Is Your Child A Bully ?

    Ask a child why he or she is bullying others. Sometimes, a bully may have a psychological problem that needs to be dealt with first. Be empathetic and neutral rather than angry and loud when you speak to your child, so that you can get to root of the problem. Listen attentively to the child and to his or her viewpoint. Help your child to say sorry to the victim of his or her bullying. Help the child to write a note or make card.

    Think about why your child is bullying. There are many possible reasons for this:
    • The child is a victim of bullying in the past.
    • The child is exposed to violence – either at home, school or in the media.
    • The child is given stiff punishments and brought up very strictly.
