On the opposite side, it is equally important to notice the warning signs that a child may be the bully. Bullies will often justify their actions by peer acceptance. This may look like reoccurring sarcastic or negative comments about physical or emotional characteristics that are brushed off as “jokes.” Bullies often have one or two close friends and they value their opinions above others or the community. They often have difficulty admitting their mistakes or may admit to them, but not show a need to repair the relationship.
In the end, bullying creates a toxic environment. It is our job as parents and educators to teach our children to accept those around them and to recognize that bullying is weaponry. To teach children the difference between teasing and bullying is crucial to not only their ability to advocate for themselves, but also their ability to see the destruction it causes to those around them.
