Signs of bullying

The signs that your child is being bullied are quite a few. The first one that you want to be aware of is decline in academic performance. That happens really fast. You can see that within a week. The second is even in adolescence you can see bedwetting. As early as four years of age and the child has been potty trained, all the way to 18 years of age, you can see bedwetting, even day wetting. The third thing is change in eating habits. Finally, if your kid is passive but is now aggressive or if your kid is oppositional and then, all of a sudden, they become more passive. These are some of the tale-tell signs that a kid is being bullied at school.
