Physical Signs

Perhaps the most obvious sign that your child is being bullied are unexplained physical marks on his body, such as bruises, scrapes, and other injuries. Be aware if your child starts frequently wearing long-sleeves, even in warm weather, as this could be a sign that he is trying to cover something up.

Physical ailments such as headaches and stomachaches are other possible indicators. Take note if your child frequently visits the nurse with these symptoms. Stress and anxiety from bullying might be the cause.
