Advice for parents who want to recognize the forms abuse can take and learn to determine whether their child is being bullied—or is the bully him/herself.

What can you say to a daughter who comes home day after day complaining of being threatened or hit or worse? What if your son is clearly the victim of vicious teasing but doesn't even want to talk about it? What should you do when you suspect your child may, in fact, be the bully? Your Child: Bully or Victim? offers hands-on help for parents to stop bullying before it begins.
