Claudio Cerullo says to be aware of signs of bullying - A child may indicate by their behavior that he or she is being bullied.

Certain students are more susceptible to becoming victims of bullying. Students who are obese, enrolled in remedial education, have developmental disabilities, and are insecure and anxious are more at risk.

In general boys experience more physical bullying victimization, and girls are more likely to be targets of indirect victimization, such as being excluded by social groups.

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.
