Understanding, Preventing and Taking Action
Unfortunately, bullying is a common experience for many children and adolescents, and recent increases in frequency and severity have been highlighted in news stories from around the globe. Research indicates that half of all children are bullied at some time during their school years, and at least 10% endure bullying on a regular basis.
Bullying has serious personal, relational and social consequences. It can interfere with social development, self-esteem and the school performance of everyone involved — perpetrators, victims and bystanders. Victims of bullying are also at increased risk for problems with anxiety and depression, and recent research shows that teens who are the victims of bullying are more likely to abuse tobacco, alcohol and drugs and to indulge in reckless sexual behavior. Some victims of repeated bullying even attempt suicide in an effort to escape the ongoing harassment.
