It is something that almost all children experience in some way, receiving negative reactions from their friends, but these reactions can sometimes increase the dose and cause your child to be subjected to violence, exclusion and isolation in the school environment. This can sometimes be difficult to understand as parents, but by reading this article you can see if your child is experiencing such a problem at school.
There may also be three different types of violence your child experiences in school settings. These…
-Special violence: Friends can threaten your child, swear at it or name it
- Psychological violence: They can exclude him from games or talk about him.
- Physical violence: They can do physical harm to your child, beat him, push him during games or take his personal belongings.
The gender of the child may affect the form of violence…
If you have a daughter and she is subjected to violence from other girlfriends, this violence is often included in what we call verbal or psychological violence, because girls often do not prefer to use physical violence: for example, your child may get a reaction when playing with a friend's toy :
Ver Quickly give me that toy or I won't talk to you again ”or
“If you don't give me that toy, I won't let you play again bir
But if your child is a man and is subjected to violence from his or her boyfriends, this is usually physical violence and can lead to changes in your child's physical body and belongings that you can easily observe.
What are the signs?
- your child may be crying frequently
- may exhibit abnormal levels of passivity and introversion
- may complain of abdominal or headaches for no apparent reason.
- if there are wounds that he cannot explain in different parts of his body
- there is a sudden drop in your child's academic achievement
- if he doesn't want to go to school
- your child's sudden changes in his or her own ideas in his speeches, he thinks he is useless, and he uses unpleasant words when he talks about himself.
- changes in your child's social life, for example, when friends do not invite him or her to play games or are invited to their birthdays.
What can you do?
Give your child time and opportunity to talk to you
- If your child doesn't talk, try to talk to him, but be careful not to threaten or blame him.
- Observe your child's relationship with friends and try to understand why your child is being subjected to violence, for example, sometimes children do not know how to behave during the game, they may not share their toys with their friends and as a result they may be exposed to violence from other friends. So observe your child's behavior and teach him / her the correct behavior.
- Cooperate with the teacher at the school and ask him to show sensitivity to the situation.
