It is sad to note that bullying is still a big problem, especially in schools from which kids of different backgrounds are getting their education. Aside from looks, body shape and racial ethnicity are noted as the primary reasons of bullying in a recent study by Bradley University and its masters in counseling programs. It is also sad to note that the same study concluded that one in every four students are victims of bullying.
Active steps are being taken to prevent bullying from ruining many children’s futures. Counselors are being empowered so that they can identify signs of bullying without the kids reporting it directly. Counselors can also work together with parents – including each of us – in identifying the common effects of bullying. Sometimes, noticing a slight change in habits or behavior is all it takes to help our children.
