What are signs of bullying parents can look for?


If your child is being bullied at school, he or she might be hesitant to share that information with you. In this video, Celia Heppner, Psy.D., clinical psychologist at Children’s Health℠, shares signs to look for if you suspect your child is being bullied or teased. Some items to watch for in your child include:

  • Anxiety about going to school
