Dealing with Bullying and Cyber-bullying Unless you’ve directly experienced bullying or cyber-bullying, you may not realize just how devastating it can be, especially to a child or teenager. As well as being deeply hurtful, bullying can leave anyone feeling frightened, angry, depressed, and totally undermined. But bullying should never be tolerated. Whether you’re the one being bullied, or you’re a teacher or parent who thinks their child is being bullied or engaged in bullying behavior, there are steps you can take to deal with the problem. Emotional Bullying in Children The typical meaning of "bully", as we are familiar of it, is someone who enjoys beating up, picking on, and exhorting others. Well, what we do not know is that bullying not only pertains to physical abuse or threat or torment. Sadly, a child can be emotionally abused, and nobody would even know that he is suffering from it. Unlike physical abuse, emotional abuse does not leave evidence or manifestations, like scars or bruises. So ,it is less seen or noticed by adults.
