Here are some signs that are of concern:

"If a parent suspects his or her child is bullying other students, it is critical that parents of bullies be clear that they do not support the behavior. Not only should they contact the school, but they should enforce rules regarding behavior and get their child involved with positive social activities," said Claudio Cerullo.
