Bullying after school

Bullying is the use of force, threats, abuse, or aggressively dominate others. Bullying is repetitive and chronic. It harms the mental, physical and emotional health of the individual being bullied. It involves the misuse of power by a person or group. This harmful practice is widespread in schools and high schools. It is also known as peer abuse.

There are different ways to deal with bullying. The worst way to handle it is by ignoring it. This makes the aggressor bolder and more hurtful. Discussed in this article are the ways you can deal with your child's bully.

The Best Way to Deal with Bullying

The best way is to nip the practice as early as possible. Authority figures, especially the parents and teachers, can play an essential role in recognizing and stopping undesirable behavior. It is essential to create a conducive environment for the child's holistic development. It is heartening that the threat posed by bullying is being recognized worldwide. Many campaigns and awareness drives for bully prevention are conducted throughout the world.

As a parent, it is essential to realize the role you can play in addressing bullying in your child's understanding of managing the problems in relationships. Research proves that the "authoritative parenting style" plays an effective role in the child's better mental health, resulting in more vital relationship skills and higher achievements. The children raised by authoritative parents receive a high volume of warmth, affection, and nearness.

Child Psychology places greater emphasis on emotional intelligence and emotional quotient over intelligence. Compassionate parents encourage emotional development by discussing emotions and interpersonal relationships. Parents can inspire supportive friendships and peer relationships that watch out for each other in environments inside and outside the school. The realization by children that their parents believe in their social abilities boosts their confidence to deal with bullying situations more aptly and skillfully.
