“I did tell my mom. She didn’t believe me.”
“I tried to tell, but I got too embarrassed.”
“Why bother? The stuff my mom told me to try wouldn’t work.”
Kids are often not able to express themselves.
Adults may not know the signs of bullying, or may feel helpless.
Teachers/principals use specific language that can be confusing.
Parents may not know how to deal with school administration.
Repeated bullying impacts kids and can result
in feelings of helplessness, a decrease in self esteem and in severe cases, suicide.
The signs of bullying include physical injuries, loss of interest in school, avoiding social situations, change in eating habits, declining grades and difficulty sleeping or focusing on homework.
