LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - We all hear about bullying, and it's usually about boys bullying boys, or girls bullying girls. Opposite sex bullying is somewhat rare, but still happens.
Sometimes bullying by the opposite sex gets swept up in the hype of teen hormones, drama and puppy love, when it really signals a deeper problem.
Little Rock Family editor Heather Bennett tells us love's got nothing to do with this social issue as she joins us again to highlight National Bullying Awareness month. Here are some things to look out for:
1. Aggressive boys AND aggressive girls
2. A form of domestic/social violence
3. Causes: environment/insecurities/mental illness
4. Stay tuned in to your child.
5. Communication about friends/relationships.
6. Seek help.
