Recognizing Bully Behavior in Your Child
When it comes to bullying, having control is what the bully desires. It is the main thing that is taken away from the victim. The bully, for some reason, has a high urge to get his/her control needs met.

How can you tell if your child is a bully?

Some believe that if a kid's control needs are not being met at home, they will be met elsewhere, such as at school by bullying other students.

How can kids and parents effectively deal with bullying?

Dr. Bulach joins Melanie Cole, MS, to discuss bullying and ways you can tell if your child is bullying other kids or being bullied.
