It can be hard to accept that your child may be bullying other children. But once you recognize the problem, you can help solve it by helping your child learn how his or her actions affect others. Being sensitive to others' feelings (empathy) is largely a learned skill that you can teach your child.
If the behaviour does not improve, seek help for your child from a psychiatrist, psychologist, or a professional counsellor.
