There is a old saying some mothers use. If your baby bites you; bite them back. (obviously more gently) but you get the idea.
First the subject of how is the child bullying? Is it one incident or has it been many phone calls from the childs school with a long list of complaints from other parents. It makes a difference.
Children do not possess the restraint that an adult has.If they suffer they lash out. And that is what bullies are doing. Expressing their pain and/or frustration the only way they know how.
First emotional issues need to be addressed by the child either speaking with a parent or a counselor/therapist. From there therapy should continue teaching constructive ways to express their feelings.
how do you know your child is a bully? Unless the teacher says so. You gotta ask your child to tell the whole truth or he will have a long nose and teach him to stop bullying others. Spanking don't work
first of all it has been seen that those kids who are bully or pretend to be one are broken inside or has been treated wrongly or misunderstood in life or their mom dad give then no or extra attention. so first off all you have to get them a foundation of rules to live in with. teaching them how it feels to get bully is the best idea if anything doesn't work 'a councilor is always an open option'. if the kid is really out of your hands.
Bullies usually have poor self esteem so try to use power and bully others. The first thing is to talk to your child with love and understand him. Whatever his issues are, you can try to help him with self esteem, anger issues, and why he bullies. Talk to teachers, guidance counselors to enlist their help. You might talk about his peer group to see if his friends bully others. If you are a single parent, that could be an issue. If you need more help, you might both go to counseling.
