Teenage-Bullying: A Serious Issue
America has a bullying issue - as many as one out of three teens suffer long-term effects from daily, adolescent bullying.
And the consequences of bullying - both long-term and short-term - are severe. As many as two children attempt to take their life every 1 hour. Needless to say, bullying is an important issue that parents must fully appreciate and recognize.
As a Parent, It's Important To Recognize Whether or Not Your Child is a Bully
As a parent, it's important to ask your child if he/she gets bullied in school. Every good parent knows that. However, what most parents don't know, or fail to remember, is that it is just as crucial for them to inquire about their child possibly being a bully, themselves.
When it comes to bullying in America, parents, teachers, and social workers have become expert in addressing the victim's psychological issues. Be that as it may, they all too often forget about the other child in the bullying equation: the bully.
The truth of the matter is that bullies are almost always the victim of bullying themselves or, at the very least, suffer from a psychological disorder that causes their tyrannical behaviors. By treating teenage bullies as who and what they are - children with severe emotional and psychological disorders - we will be well on our way in further eliminating teenage harassment in America.
Just Remember: Teen-Bullies Are Children Too...
Teenage bullies are children; therefore, we as a caregiving society ought to treat them as such. Bullies often act on their harassing tendencies because, they, themselves, feel inadequate, insecure, angry or scared. What's more, bullying isn't just an American issue; it's a global problem. Even in war-torn countries like that of Somalia.
Until we address the psychological issues of both the bullIED and the buLLY, severe, adolescent harassment is a matter which we will not be able to truly overcome.
