Childhood bullying damaging

Childhood bullying

Bullying at a young age is more damaging than previously thought.

A shocking new study (reported here) has shown that childhood bullying is more damaging than previously thought.  It can affect a person right into adulthood, affecting their health, career and relationships.  Furthermore school bullies were found to be more likely to become adult criminals.

This gives further reasons why bullying can not be tolerated, and raises issues about how schools deal with it.  All too often teachers and schools, with many other things to deal with, can think it is relatively unimportant, or that it is up to parents to deal with such issues.

Has school bullying affected you?  Or if you’re a teacher, how does your school deal with bullying?
