habit of bullying must be controlled in children before it is too late. Read on
to learn more about the 10 signs that you are raising a bully.
We have all heard the word ‘bully.’ Nobody wants their kids to be known as a ‘bully’. Bullies are often angry children who want to remove their frustration and hatred on others. Unfortunately there are many adults also who are bullies so why only blame such children?
Here are ten signs that you are raising a bully. Take care to ensure that such behaviour is not occurring with your kids.
Regular tantrums at home are signs that you are raising a bully. A child who refuses to listen and always wants his or her way is going to become more and more adamant as time passes. Hence, parents must take precautions in the beginning itself to stop tantrums and adamant behaviour.
Laughing at Others
Children who like to bully often start by laughing at other kids or making fun of them. This is not a good sign. Teach your child to respect all type of people. This will help him or her understand that everyone is a human being and nobody should be ill-treated.
A revengeful or angry nature is not a good sign. Some children like to avenge their insult by taking revenge on others. Such children should be corrected at an early age itself. A revengeful nature can lead to other serious behavioural problems.
Children should be taught to co-operate with everybody. This will teach them the value of relationships. Children who get into trouble and do not cooperate with others are not liked. They are labelled as trouble-makers.
Complaints from School
Regular complaints from the school about your child should not be taken lightly. If your child is getting into trouble and teachers are informing you about it, then take it seriously and look into the matter immediately. Do not ignore such warnings.
Some children have destructive tendencies. Troubling animals, siblings and others are often signs of destructive nature. Children who refuse to listen to parents and get pleasure by doing wrong things should be taught better manners and corrected.
Low Self Esteem
They say that lack of self esteem and low confidence could lead to bullying. Children who have less confidence and self esteem are more likely to trouble or laugh at others in order to make themselves feel better.
Causing injury and violence is a sign that your child is a sort of bully. Children who push other kids and fight with others are labelled as trouble-makers. Teach your child to never physically harm any human being or even animal.
They Like to Boss Around
Bullies often like to boss around. They get angry if they do not have their way. Children should be taught that they cannot always have what they want in life. They must adjust with all. Bossing around is a sign of ego and adamant nature.
Troubling Younger Kids or Siblings
There are many older children who like to trouble their younger siblings. They boss over the young ones and even hit them. Stop such behaviour immediately if you happen to see it at home or anywhere else. Younger kids must be treated properly by the older ones at home or outside.
Bullies are children who are often not loved by others. They do not have many friends because they keep getting into trouble. This is not to be confused with those kids who do not have friends due to other reasons. Bullies can be corrected and taught to improve themselves. The nicer they are the happier and lovable they will become. Bullies should not always to be hated. They can change and become good also.
