Bullying and Mental Health

With the school year about to begin again, many children may become the victims of bullying.  This post is going to help you as a parent or teacher help your child or student deal with bullying.

Children that experience bullying may experience serious emotional and mental disabilities. Bullying may interfere with social development, and self-esteem. Children who have been bullied are also at increased risk for problems with anxiety and depression.

1) What Can I Do As A Parent? Help your child to understand what bullying is and teach them how to safely stand up for themselves and others.

2) Always Communicate. Check in with your children often. Listen to them. Know who their friends are, ask questions about school, understand, and listen to their concerns.

If you or someone you know is dealing with mental health, issues please seek help. I am available at darlacarmoneyllpc@gmail.com.  There is help for you.
