Chalk Talk: Gender Differences in Middle School
Even though each child is different, there are general similarities. In the middle school years, boys have a tendency to be more physical than girls and a little louder. Because of this, at this age, male bullying can go undetected. Parents need to be aware of torn clothing, bruises or behavioral changes to see if their child is being bullied. Male friendships, at this age, find friends always vying for position in their hierarchical framework. They may share insults but yet through this they learn to change the behavior. Girls, however, tend to hide their anger and aggression. So instead of being verbal, they may pass notes, spread rumors or exclude others. Girls also tend to turn on their friends and if they become scared of speaking up they can turn to bullying to prevent become a victim. This can lead to a mental pain for these females unless authority figures are made aware of this silent behavior. If parents are concerned about bullying, they should talk with the child and listen.
