why bullies target struggling students-and some signs and symptoms to look for in your child why are kids with learning struggles common targets of bullying? these children can easily get caught in an endless cycle: they're bullied because their low self-esteem makes them easy targets, and their fear of being bullied can cause them to avoid school, participate less in class or develop an inability to concentrate. how do you know if your child is being bullied? barring no direct request for help, here are some signs and symptoms for: making excuses to avoid school " decreased appetite or sudden binging unexplained injuries or ripped clothing " difficulty sleeping returning from school without belongings " avoiding being alone what can parents do your approach can be three-pronged: end the bullying, address the learning disabilities, and build your child's confidence. 1. initiate a conversation with your child. try to listen more than you talk, then work together to find a
don't assume your child wants you to talk to the parents of the bully .2. monitor your child's activities - especially online. there's a fine line between snooping and monitoring, and parents need to decide for themselves where that is. 3. enroll your child in cognitive skills training.cognitive training can target and train weak skills that are behind learning struggles. one form of cognitive training is personal brain training, which uses immediate feedback, intensity, to target and train core brain skills. effective brain training customizes programs based on the results of an initial cognitive skills assessment and uses exercises founded on years of clinical and scientific research. 4. teach your children to be more assertive.a bully's goal is generally to provoke a reaction from their victim. teaching a child to remain composed, firm, and assertive can be enough to deflate a bully's interest. 5. report the bullying to the school. this will be tricky if your child is worried that "tattling" will only make the bullying worse. but schools are getting better about implementing zero- tolerance policies to work against creating a culture of fear. getting the school involved validates your child's fears and demonstrates your support. courtney, thanks for being here. ming up tomorrow, our
