A recent article in the Lancet Psychiatry illustrates the profound effects that bullying may have on victims well into adulthood. The study outlined in the piece reveals that children are more impacted by peer bullying than they are by mistreatment from adults. Researchers also found that those children who were treated poorly by adults were more likely to be bullied. The study also confirmed what many know: sufferers of bullying are more likely to experience anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts. Experts pointed to the repetitive and traumatic nature of bullying as one of the main drivers of these long-term effects.
Overall, the study confirms the seriousness of bullying and the lifetime repercussions it can have. If your child is being bullied in school or online, you don’t have to stand for it. A passionate lawyer who knows New Jersey HIB (Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying) laws can help you get justice for your child and protect them from the bullying nightmare they’re living on a daily basis.
Every child has the right to an education without the threat of harassment, discrimination, ridicule or torment. While each child’s ability to cope with bullying is different, many tend to internalize the experiences and either start believing what is being said about them or develop a profound fear that leads to anxiety disorder.
It’s debatable whether schools across the country will ever be able to put an end to the bullying that goes on every day in hallways and classrooms. In the meantime, you and your child have options to help end the cycle of traumatic abuse. Bullying can take many forms: name-calling, physical assault, discrimination, exclusion and much more. Social media subjects kids to bullying 24/7. Children don’t often realize the power they have when they choose to bully their peers, thus it is up to parents and schools to teach them right from wrong.
