Kids never say a word about getting bullied. Not to mention family, they even keep their mouth shut from their friends. They suffer in silence and allows the bullying to escalate. For kids, being bullied is embarrassing and painful at the same time. Additionally, the reason why they don\u2019t speak up is that they are worried that others will agree with the bully or believe that they deserve the treatment. Besides that, they are also worried that telling someone will only make the situation worse. And this is actually true. Many signs indicate if someone is affected by bullying. The most critical step is to recognize the warning signs to take any action. Not many children ask for help, whether they are the bully or are being bullied. It\u2019s really important to talk to them and to help them identify the root of the problem. Credit: Cuchini Blog Here are the signs a child is being bullied 1.
