If you are worried about your child being bullied, there are some signs that you can look out for. First, irritability. If your child comes home from school and, in an instant, they are in a bad mood. That could mean they are having some emotional turmoil and they are being bullied or harassed at school. Depression. Depression is another thing that happens when teenagers are being bullied because they feel like their own internal health is why they are being harassed at school. Lastly, mood swings.

You can even contact the school to see if there is anything happening on the playground.
