This article aims to publicize the symptoms of bullying, what should be taken into account to detect it early, and how to avoid it when our children are victims of this school act.
Our children, as social human beings, must relate to the world. After their family they will have to face school, where they will no longer be the center of attention, but one more. There they will be forced to face many situations and challenges that will help them grow and mature as people. But, what is it that we must accept that our children live, and what not?
It is there where many parents, teachers, and even the students themselves do not realize that they are being victims, or are causing the famous school bullying , which is the deliberate and constant physical and / or psychological abuse that a child receives from of another or others, who behave cruelly towards him with the aim of subduing and frightening him. The bullying involves continuous repetition of teasing or aggression and can cause social exclusion of the victim, according to the psychological and pedagogical theories that study the subject.
How can I tell if my children are victims of this social act that begins to be experienced every day? Below I list some aspects to consider:

like headache, stomach pain; diarrhea and vomiting without any medical explanation.

to tell your case; Through dialogue you can discover what they are being victims of.
Request help from a specialist
This will help your son or daughter develop confidence.

Coexistence department, in charge of regulating aggressiveness in students.
Not leaving so much free time for your children

Listen to our children and students
Only they know what is actually lived in the classroom. For this reason we must listen to what they tell us and not miss anything.

Let’s not let these things happen and open the channel of communication with our children and students. Teachers and parents, have you talked with your children and students about this topic?
