Bullying Warning Signs
Say 'NO' to Bullying
If you think your child is being bullied, get help right away:
- Tell a teacher, school administrator or counselor.
- Encourage your children to talk to you.
- Reach out to a community organization or other parents.
See resources at the Ventura County Office of Education.
Resources include Restorative Justice which holds students accountable for their actions and behavior while at the same time building a nurturing school environment.
Look for signs that your child is being bullied:
- Does your child seem more anxious or depressed recently?
- Has your child changed their eating or sleeping habits? Is there a noticeable increase or decrease in how much they eat?
- Is your child reluctant to go to school or ride the school bus?
- Has your child stopped enjoying the things they usually like to do?
- Did your child’s personality change from outgoing to shy and fearful?
- Do you notice that your child does not join in group activities anymore?
- Has your child recently given up sports or clubs that they once loved?
- Is your child suddenly afraid of normal social settings?
