I think my five year old may be either be a victim of bullying, or he's turning into one, or maybe even both? I'm still sorta new to having a child in school (he's in kindergarten) So this is my question: Any advice on what I should do?? I'm a little scared about it, and I'm not too sure where to start. Google has helped NONE, (No, I do not expect Google to have all the answers.... just never seems to be able to help when it's important.. )
The reason I think what I do, is because in the past few weeks, he's become more and more aggressive towards his brother, (Past the point of comfortably calling it sibling rivalry) and tonight I found out that he's decided to try the aggression out on my five year old sister in law. When I say aggression, I mean being mean, hitting, pushing, screaming at, yelling, throwing things, bossing them around, behaviors that are NOT typical from him. (He's not perfect, but this is crazy to me) I'm trying really hard not to panic, but I see a lot of room for error on my part if I don't handle this the right way. Any tips, information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. (Schools and the Doctors are closed for the weekend, so all I have for advice is Circle of Moms and family/friends between now and Monday when I can talk to his teacher about it.)
Thanks in advance!
