The effects of bullying on children

Use dinner-time or storytime to have a one to one with your child and find out how they are feeling. Give your child as much space as possible to express themselves and voice concerns about anything that may be going on in their school life or with friends.

Being in a supportive environment is one of the best ways children can indicate to adults that they may be feeling low or experiencing bullying. The immediate short-term and long-term effects of bullying on children can have a detrimental impact on their mental health, physical health as well as their growth and development.
