Bullying Behaviors To Watch For In Troubled Teens
One of the key behaviors that may indicate bullying is frequent, angry outburst. If your troubled teen regularly has trouble controlling their temper, then they are much more likely to engage in bullying. This is particularly true if they are quick to resort to violence after becoming angry. Another important indicator that your teen may be engaging in bullying is their interactions with siblings. If your troubled teen frequently insults, intimidates, or even assaults their siblings, then they are likely behaving in this manner outside the home as well. If you have noticed these behaviors, it is important that you act quickly. Your teen may have anger and impulse control issues that require professional attention. The sooner you address this issue, the more effective treatment methods will be in helping your troubled teen reform.
