School can be tough on kids so it is important that mums are aware of any changes in their child’s behaviour as it may stem from them being a victim of bullying. 
 
Boys are more likely to be bullied than girls but girls are more likely to experience cyber-bullying.
 
Cyber-bullying can be very scary for children. It extends outside of school hours so it means that children have no safe haven from it at home.  It can take place in chat rooms, blogs, email, text and picture messaging, and on social networking sites.
 
While cyber-bullying has been highly publicised over the last year it is not overtaking traditional physical and verbal bullying in terms of prevalence.
 
It is important that your child feels they have somebody to talk too, let them know that you are there for them and that they can talk to you about anything that may be bothering them.
