Bullying Symptoms

bullying-symptomsKids can be incredibly cruel to one another in and out of school and online as well as offline. Observant parents can evaluate any bullying symptoms that their children exhibit in order to prevent harmful bullying behavior.

Parents cannot take bullying or cyberbullying incidents lightly. There are far too many instances of bullying behavior becoming deadly. At GWC Injury Lawyers, we understand that bullying behavior affects all of us.

Illinois is on the cutting edge of anti-bullying legislation in the country. In Illinois, bullying includes harassment based on:

  • Race
  • Color
  • Religion
  • Nationality
  • Sexuality
  • Gender
  • Physical disabilities
  • Mental disabilities

When children and students are being harassed by other children there are some common symptoms that parents can pay attention to, including:

  • Headaches
  • Stomachaches
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Refusal to attend school
  • Withdrawal form normal activities
  • Bruises

Parents who suspect that a child is the victim of bullying behavior must act quickly to intervene and prevent the bullying behavior while building a support network for the student at school and in the community.

Parents should immediately engage school administrators, teachers and parents to decrease the incidences of bullying. Therapy, counseling and weekly check-in conversations about bullying behavior are a great way to identify instances of bullying and intervene.
