Why is my child bullied? Bully vs Bullied

Either side of this quandary has its challenges. Most of us would have more empathy for the individual being bullied. Their 'hurt' is more obvious, whether it's physical or emotional. However, the bully is hurting too. A bully often has a following but no real friends. The bully tries to prove he is a somebody by overpowering another. It doesn't really heal the hurt on the inside - it's just a temporary fix.


This month we are talking about Bullying from both sides of the equation and some of the brain skills that both bullies and their victims have in common. Check out this month's YouTube video and blogs for great information. I think you will be surprised how an out of balance brain skill impacts the lives of the bully and the bullied. Breakthroughs in Learning has had the privilege of seeing lives dramatically changed in both of these scenarios.
