It doesn’t matter if you are looking for your young child or your teen, finding the right help is never easy. It is doubly difficult when your child struggles socially.

They spend a lot of time defining bullying, promoting catchy slogans, and not doing anything to help your child to avoid being bullied. I know this because I have witnessed it firsthand. Kids who struggle socially are very…
