Cyberbullying

CyberbullyingWe all know that bullying happens; and at some point, almost everyone has seen the effects of it. With all of the technology that is available now, we also see that bullying can happen at any hour of the day, anytime of the week.

It is important to know the signs and to seek help when someone is being bullied to help minimize any long term effects.

Signs to look for in children include:

  • Having frequent headaches or stomach aches
  • Refusing to go to school
  • Talking about running away or harming themselves
  • Avoiding social situations they used to enjoy
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Acting irritable, angry or upset after looking at a phone or being on a computer

If you have a child and see any of these signs, there is a possibility that they may be being bullied. Most schools have resources and policies in regards to bullying that you can definitely utilize. You can help your child by talking with them and sharing different ways to handle situations when bullying occurs. If your child has a difficult time opening up, you may want to seek the help of a professional to share insight and learn additional ways to cope.

Does your child have School Anxiety?

Is your child refusing to go to school? Complaining of head aches, stomach aches or crying when it is time to get ready for school?

There are many factors that can cause a child to have anxiety about going to school from being nervous about doing well in school, being bullied, anxiety over making friends or not being comfortable in the classroom. All of these can cause signs and symptoms of anxiety. The sooner intervention takes place to help ease the anxiety of going to school, the better off your child will be.

For other useful information about school anxiety see the Anxiety and Depression Association of America website and AnxietyBC
