It can cause stomach issues, headaches, decreased appetite, anxiety, irritability, and depression among other things, but it’s not a physical problem it’s psychological, and it can be prevented.

One in three US school children have reported being bullied according to the Department of Health and Human Services, and bullying can not only cause a child to miss days of school, but it can also result in many physical and psychological problems. Some children sadly have even committed suicide.

Jenna Smith is an Ontological Coach and Shamanic Intuitive and she has a lot to say about bullying and some things parents and schools can do to stop and prevent it. She has written a course that helps people get in touch with their feelings and helps them work out the problems in their life.

One of the signs a child is being bullied is the child may have a personality change. They may be more introverted than usual or the opposite, they may become an extrovert. They may start being withdrawn and start complaining of physical ailments that they never used to have or these problems may become more frequent.

One of the most important things a parent can do is to pay attention to their children and notice when they start acting differently. Another very important thing a parent can do is to be open minded and listen – truly listen to their child when their child is speaking to them. These things and more are part of the discussion on this troubling problem so many children face. Be sure to listen closely and take notes and spread this link to those who may benefit from it.

Jenna Smith has had great success working with clients in all areas of their lives including relationships, career, confidence, health, and life purpose. She guides her clients through the complicated areas of life and helps make them simple. As Jenna explains: “Most people shove everything into this place inside of them and they kinda lock it down and keep it there so that when they do access their feelings it’s an overwhelming experience because they’re accessing years and years and layers and layers it’s because that’s all they knew.”
