If your child is getting bullied - in the park, in the school bus or at school - you are sure to have a why me moment in which you question why your child gets bullied when there are so many others
It can be very disturbing if your child is the target of a bully or a bunch of bullies - and if you are wondering why they are picking on him - you need to understand that bullies pick on children who feel small.
Bullies pick children with low self-esteem.
Are you shocked to hear that your child has low self-esteem?
Children often develop low self-esteem and begin to feel small when we constantly criticize everything they do and we constantly compare them with others.
They begin to then feel small.
Even if they are physically big - in their minds they begin to feel small.
And these are the children who bullies are on the look out for.
These are the children they know they will be able to control - because these are the children who are desperate to fit in. These are the children who think being abused and degraded is a way of life.
If you want to keep your child safe from bullies - accept your child for who he is.
Accept him unconditionally.
Tell him that you love him for who he is and not what he does.
Fortify him with your love and acceptance and he will never be picked on by bullies.
