Bullying happens in every school, and any child can fall victim to it. Bullying should never be perceived as something unavoidable or simply a normal part of school life.

Bullying can take multiple different forms, which can be pretty hard to recognize. It can be physical (hitting, pushing, punching, etc.), emotional (humiliating, intimidating, threatening, ignoring, etc.), verbal (calling names, teasing, etc.).

How can we protect our children from all of this? Any problem should be recognized to be solved. Therefore, we need to know the signs of bullying to be able to help.
