When your child is the bully

Your kid is bullying. Bullying is very common. It's been around forever and we know what it comes from. Almost always comes from a child being scared and acting in a counterproductive or dumb way. Now, the kid needs to find ways to express what they are not able to express in any other way and what you need is someone to help them do that. The bad news is you're probably not the person they can do that with. You need to find someone, a teacher, a therapist, a religious leader who can sit with your child and find ways to bring out those feelings. Most important, it needs to be somebody that can come from the attitude of, while what the kid is doing is wrong, the kid them self is acceptable and lovable. That's the message they need to get to move past this bad phase.
