The purpose of this study is to find out if bully-victims are bullied and affected more than pure victims in terms of physical and verbal bullying. It is also to figure out why some children become victims and bullies, and others do not. What I will be discussing about in this essay would be the weaknesses and strengths of each study, the differences and similarities between the two, the implications of five other articles and at the end either support or contradict what was studied. SUMMARY Bullying is a frequent and recurring aggression in which one or more people deliberately disturb or harm another helpless individual verbally, physically, or psychologically (Olweus, 1996a). However, the child who bullies, pure bullies, or in this case, bully-victims, who are victims themselves and also bullies others are usually highly
The bystander was more likely to intervene if the act was more severe. Bastiaensens, et al also suggests that this is why we need to teach people about the seriousness of cyberbullying and the consequences it can bring to a person’s life if it is not stopped. On the other hand, Barlińska, et al (2013) showed that negative bystander behavior was significantly more evident with adolescents who had previous experiences with cyberbullying perpetration during his study in Poland. People who have bullied others before (traditional and cyber bullying) were more likely to ignore cyberbullying events they
Bullying is an undesirable, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves actual disparity of power. According to Megan Brooks bullying is a serious public health problems, with significant short-and long-term psychological consequences for the child who is bullied and the child who is the bully. This only tells us that bullying can lead to difficulty that a certain children may experience and will have either short or long term problem. “Bullying has long been tolerated as a rite of passage among children and adolescents, but it has lasting, negative consequences and cannot simply be ignored.” Committee chair Frederick Rivera, MD. Experiential studies and some high profile communicative cases have demonstrated a connection
Bullying often results in the separation of the victims and their friends. This is not the only way to stop bullying though. By reporting it to a trustworthy adult, you can make sure that the bullies are not able to hurt you anymore. These two stories also show that there are multiple methods of bullying that get in the victim 's head just as much as the next. Josh was bullied through physical abuse, while Ashley was cyberbullied.
Physically punishing children can affect the child in the long term rather than short term, which is why many parents that physically punish their kids do not think that it is unethical. The long term affects to the children’s mental health is alarming as Time magazine stated that “The risk of depression alone was 1.4 times greater, which was the same rate for anxiety” (Rochman, 2012) also some of the other mental illnesses that are correlated with the use of physical punishment are mood and anxiety disorders, substance/alcohol abuse which can all hinder the lives of children maturing. Corporal punishment also imbeds anger into the child making them exhibit aggressive behaviors towards others in the article the case against spanking “researchers interviewed parents and children age 3 to 7 from more than 100 families. Children who were physically punished were more likely to endorse hitting as a means of resolving their conflicts with peers and siblings” (Smith, 2012, Pg. 60) this only proves that children will inherit their parent’s aggressive attitudes.
Domestic Violence: Reasons, Effects and Prevention Domestic violence is a momentous phenomenon that can be encountered throughout the world and has been plaguing our society. As every act of abuse, it impacts the victim's health but also heavily affects severely the family dynamics and causes emotional distress that exceeds well beyond the physical trauma, while it also disrupts the society. Domestic abuse takes place due to several reasons linked with the personalities of the parties involved and their socioeconomic status.

In order to move up the ranks in their gangs, their crimes become more gruesome causing them to become traumatized. Initially, youth feel a sense of sympathy for the family of the victims, but it is short lived and after the guilt is passed they immerse themselves once in crime. Kelly, Anderson and Penden (2009) said that exposure to gang violence at an early stage makes the perpetrator feel sympathy for the victim, however, committing the act may lead to desensitization. Futhermore, violence increases the likelihood of aggression and violent behaviour in youth, which stimulates aggressive thoughts and behaviours. Youths which have aggressive thoughts influences their interpretation of situation, such that they inflict hostile behaviour on people.
The practice of spanking often correlates with children developing into violent adolescents. In addition to its ineffectiveness at correcting children’s behaviour, spanking can lead to life long side effects. Long term effects of corporal punishment that children develop include mental health issues, increase in delinquent behaviour during childhood, criminal behaviour and negative parent-child relationships. (Sage Journals, 2000) In addition to long term side effects that corporal punishment has on children, national professional organizations agree and strive to eliminate corporal punishment.

Among the students, especially in the high schools, bullying is some kind of power-seeking and it is a common behavior.

As well as their parents resulted in criminalization of young individuals and families. Solomon, 2007) has also criticise this and argued that the majority of these family are from lower socio-economic background. The imposition of the ASBO on young people were also criticise because many younger offender had to wear tagging in school or in the community. Whereby they often becomes victims of violence themselves as well as been stigmatised. Some 40% of ASBO have been imposed on younger children ten to seventeen which many received breached, while Youth justice (2004) also highlighted that the Parenting Orders have been successful in influence parents and their children whereby parenting programs have brought about respect reference have also discuss that parent Orders have disrupts the life of many young people and their families and not allowed normal protection.
In the same article it was also stated that, “Researchers found that childhood maltreatment was a risk factor for officially recognized delinquency, violent self-reported delinquency and moderate self-reported delinquency. Overall, child maltreatment appeared to be a risk factor for more serious delinquency, such as assaults, but not lesser forms of delinquency, such as underage drinking.” Another form of juvinile behavior they partake in, often tends to lead to drug abuse.
