What are the adult health consequences of childhood bullying?

Adult Consequences to Childhood Bullying

“Still considered a rite of passage by some, research is now attempting to understand why victims of childhood bullying are at risk of poorer outcomes in adulthood, not only for psychological health, but also physical health, cognitive functioning and quality of life.

Though there is no universal definition of childhood bullying, the term is often used to describe when a child repeatedly and deliberately says or does things that causes distress to another child, or when a child attempts to force another child to do something against their will by using threats, violence or intimidation.”

“The US Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) quote studies that show the most common types of bullying are verbal and social:”

Name calling – 44.2% of cases
Teasing – 43.3%
Spreading rumors or lies – 36.3%
Pushing or shoving – 32.4%
Hitting, slapping or kicking – 29.2%
Leaving out – 28.5%
Threatening – 27.4%
Stealing belongings – 27.3%
Sexual comments or gestures – 23.7%
Email or blogging – 9.9%

“The health impact of bullying on children is complex. Research shows that persistent bullying can cause depression and anxiety and contribute to feelings of suicidal behavior.

The DHHS, however, says that media reports often “oversimplify” the relationship between suicide and bullying. Most young people who are bullied do not become suicidal, they state, and most young people who die by suicide have multiple risk factors, beyond bullying alone.

As well as the psychological impact of bullying, though, studies have shown that children who are bullied may also be prone to physical illness, not only during the period in which the bullying took place, but in later life.

For instance, recently Medical News Today reported on a study that found children who are bullied between the ages of 8 and 10 are more likely to experience sleepwalking, night terrors or nightmares at the age of 12.”

“Victims of bullying have ‘poorer health, lower income, lower quality of life’ as adults.”

“But other research shows that the long-term health effects of bullying on the victim are potentially much more far-reaching and serious.”

“Fast facts about bullying:
Over 77% of American students have been bullied verbally, mentally and physically
About 85% of incidents receive no kind of intervention, so it is common for bullying to be ignored
In surveys quoted by the DHHS, approximately 30% of young people admit to bullying others.”

Self awareness is the first step in creating what you want and mastering your. Where you focus your attention, your emotions, reactions, personality and behavior determine where you go in life.

Having self awareness allows you to see where your thoughts and emotions are taking you. It also allows you to see the controls of your emotions, behavior, and personality so you can make changes you want. Until you are aware in the moment of the controls to your thoughts, emotions, words, and behavior, you will have difficulty making changes in the direction of your life.

(FULL DISCLOSURE AND TRIGGER WARNING: Do not read this if you are sent into an emotional tailspin by discussions of innate evolutionary height disparities among human beings. The author of this article is 5’11?, which places him only slightly above the average for Americans of his gender and race. On average, white American males are slightly taller than black American males, and both groups are taller than Mexican-American males, although you probably already knew that, at least about the Mexicans. On average, all three groups of males are taller than females of any race for reasons which are undoubtedly caused by intersectional issues of oppression, nutrition, capitalism, colonialism, white privilege, and patriarchy. Monsanto is also probably largely to blame. As we all know, any measurable disparity between human groups is strictly the result of social forces rather than biological ones, and if you…
