Parents sometimes identify bullying prevention as one of the reasons they enroll their children in self defense classes.  In some cases, bullying is obvious.  Your child or school officials might simply tell you what is happening.  Other times, perhaps due to shame or fear, children do not disclose.  This is where your observation skills can help.

Here are 6 potential signs a child is being bullied.

  1. She does not want to go on the school bus.
  2. He has property go missing.
  3. She experiences illness in the morning (before school).
  4. He is frightened to walk to and from school.
  5. She is hungry after school (perhaps lunch is being stolen).
  6. A decline in school grades.

Of course, these could signify problems other than bullying.  Some kids (like adults), for example, are forgetful and frequently lose their belongings. Establish and maintain an open dialogue with your child and school officials.  Ask questions, and above all, listen.
