Once upon a time, your son couldn't wait to get to school in
the morning. He insisted on being the first one at the handball courts. Lately,
though, you can barely get him out the door. Some days, he doesn't want to go
at all. "My stomach hurts," he complains. "Can I just stay home today?"
Is he being bullied?
It's possible, says Joel Haber, clinical psychologist and author of Bullyproof Your
Child for Life: Protect Your Child from Teasing, Taunting and Bullying For
Good. "Bullying is when one or more kids intentionally hurt
another kid to increase their own status or power, at the expense of someone
else," explains Haber. But not all inappropriate socializing is bullying, he
cautions, and it's your job as a parent to make that distinction. Kids like to tease. But there are ways to tell if it's going too far.
