Signs a Child Might Be Bullied

Arthur C. Kosieradzki - SiebenCarey "Know Your Rights" AttorneyMarch 24, 2014

Sometimes, children feel uncomfortable or embarrassed about telling others - particularly their parents or teachers - about cyberbullying being done against them. But there are some common signs that can help alert adults to a problem.

Unexplained injuries, such as torn clothing and bruises or scratches, can be a red flag that cyberbullying has led to in-person bullying. If the child or teen hates going out, or finds excuses to stay home, especially from activities involving peers, it can be cause for concern. Cyberbullying can make a child tense, tearful, and defensive, and cause a sudden loss of interest in favorite activities.

Another indication of cyberbullying may be the loss of friends, or no friends at all. A child who is being bullied rarely brings friends home and may not spend time at another friend's house. He or she isn't invited to parties and shows little incentive to arrange parties, often with the excuse of "nobody will come." Sometimes, the child feels like she or he isn't "good enough."

In general, a bullied child is moody and depressed, appearing unhappy or sad with unexpected mood shifts that can range from irritability to sudden outbursts of anger. There may be a change in eating habits, as well as trouble sleeping and frequent nightmares.

If you suspect your child may be a victim of cyberbullying, contact me to discuss your legal rights.
