It's an important topic that most people don't want to think about. Bullying.
Most parents don't want to think of their children as potential bullying victims. But it can happen to everyone. And bullying can take many different forms: physical abuse, verbal abuse, or shunning which is isolating a child from everybody else.
Being bullied or shunned like that can take a huge toll on the mental and physical well being of a child. It usually makes a child feel lonely and children may develop what is known as learned helplessness. Children may manifest their stress through physical symptoms such as headaches or tummy aches, and more.
In this episode, you will learn what does it feel like to be bullied and shunned, so that you can connect better to the experience of your child, should they ever be in that place.
You will also learn the three red flags that could help you realize that something may be wrong, and if that is the case, how to start helping your child.
