Home > Patients & Visitors > Health Library > Bullying: How to Help Your Child Who Bullies
It can be hard to accept that your child may be
bullying other children. But once you recognize
the problem, you can help solve it by helping your child learn how his or her
actions affect others. Being sensitive to others' feelings (empathy) is largely
a learned skill that you can teach your child.
If the behavior does not improve, seek help for your child from a
psychiatrist, psychologist, or a licensed counselor.
