Herein lies the concern of every parent to prevent their child from suffering and the dedication of Toley Ranz to support parents in those efforts to emotionally strengthen children.
The signs of a young child being bullied are not easy to read for, young children have not mastered their emotions and can react volatile. We don’t expect them to manage their feelings fully, manage problems assertively; therefore, both sides often resort to pushing and shoving, as well as verbal ugliness. This can lead to altered behavior in any little one.
Some characteristics are not so evident to the eye but may raise suspicions. Parents need to look at new and unusual behavior such as nervousness, fear or refusal to attend school, introverted attitude for a child that’s not usually quiet, or the appearance of wounds or bruises that the child refuses to explain. At this point, the intervention and guidance of parents and teachers are essential.
But how to avoid bullying? We here at the Foundation believe that Toley Ranz plays a pivotal role in instilling feelings of self-believe, self-assurance, and self-strength. Toley Ranz is all about strengthening emotional health and happy feelings in young children.
While bullying was considered a rite of passage into adulthood for many years and generations, it is now recognized as an important and preventable public health problem. The important thing to understand here is that bullying is NOT the norm for children and that it can and should be addressed, talked about, and solved. The truth is that bullying affects all three parties, the bullied, the bully, and the spectator who sees the injustices happening in front of his or her eyes. And does nothing.
The reasons for bullying are many. A young child who engages in bullying often imitates the violent behaviors they see at home. Others do it to get attention, and some might even feel good about hurting others.
