Teasing or being teased has always been an inevitable part of one’s childhood journey. In a milder form, it is often considered to be a form of playful social exchange, and can help promote acceptance and humility. It also helps children adapt to constructive criticism. However, not all teasing is friendly and it can often have harmful consequences. Hence, it is pertinent that parents identify the signs of bullying and take necessary steps to bully-proof children.
