How to Handle a Bully
The Doctors

If you suspect your teen is  being bullied by his or her peers, psychologist Dr. Wendy Walsh shares tips for handling it and setting the best example for your child.

Faking It
“I don’t want to go to school, I’m sick!” Sound like a familiar verse in your household’s tune? The Doctors explain that most kids tend to fake illness if they’re stressed or anxious about something at school - i.e. a big exam, worrisome bully or playground politics. Kids go to great lengths to fake illness every once in awhile, but if you notice a pattern developing, take some time to unearth the root of the problem.
