Bullying is a kind of aggressive behaviour, where a 'bully' tries to hurt or intimidate another person. While you may feel a range of emotions, from being upset and worried to anger and rage that your child is being bullied, it's important to stay calm. It's best to avoid emotional, angry outbursts, because they could make your child afraid to tell you anything more. Your child may not tell you about more bullying because s/he is worried about overwhelming you and making you upset. You need to make it easy for your child to tell you about bullying.
