Bullies exist everywhere. That's according to Perrin Elementary School Counselor Vickie Giger. It's especially in schools, where some children may try to use physical or emotional power over someone else. The good news is that bullying is treatable.
Giger likes to resolve issues like this by sitting down one-on-one with the children who have the problem. She says it usually only takes one meeting to find out what's wrong and resolve it.
Bullying can be a very intimidating form of interaction between children. It's important to recognize it if you child begins showing signs of low self esteem or avoidance. That might suggest the child is facing a tough time with his or her peers at school. But Giger says often times the bullies, not the bullied, are the ones with confidence issues.
