Bullying: How to Help Your Child Who Bullies

Table of Contents


Overview

It can be hard to accept that your child may be bullying other children. But once you recognize the problem, you can help solve it by helping your child learn how their actions affect others. Being sensitive to others' feelings (empathy) is largely a learned skill that you can teach your child.

A child who bullies may need professional counselling to learn healthy ways to interact with people.
