18 Traits Of A School Bully, And How To Watch Your Kid For Them
When children blame others, they do not take full accountability for their actions. Therefore, it is more likely that they would bully other kids because they blame the victim, not themselves according to a study by Dartmouth University. Your child might be a victim-blamer if you hear them say that it is the victim’s fault for being bullied because â€œthey should stand up for themselvesâ€ or that â€œif they weren’t so nerdy, they wouldn’t get bulliedâ€. If this is the case, it is important to show your children that the victim is never the blame for a situation that happens to them such as bullying. Teach them to be nice to people instead of expecting the victim to defend themselves.
