Each year, a group of children really dread going back to school. It has nothing to do with their teachers, their assignments, or their friends, but it has everything to do with being worried about being bullied kids. It can be tough for parents to know what to do to help their children, especially when their kids are contending with bullying at school. Family therapist Jodi Aman has been working with children and their families for decades, and she recently sat down for a virtual chat with LittleThings about childhood, stress, and bullying.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Department of Education (DOE) define bullying as a behavior that includes three crucial elements:
- Unwanted aggressive behavior
- Observed or perceived power imbalance
- Repetition or high likelihood of repetition of bullying behaviors
Because Jodi works with so many different families and kids, we also wanted to ask her for tips that parents of kids who bully can use to hopefully help their children work toward no longer bullying others.
