It happens all the time, and we know it’s a major factor in teen suicides: Bullying.
It doesn’t matter if it’s verbal taunts, social media harassment, or physical assault, it is all damaging to a child.
So what would you do if your son were being bullied?
Is it best to try to give the child tools to handle it himself? Would you leave it up to the school administration to handle, or would you handle it yourself?
How does the age of the child play into what you would do, as a parent?
Does your reaction to bullying change if it’s a son versus a daughter being bullied?
