Bullying is becoming a terrible problem in our society. Many kids and teenagers are afraid to go to school and afraid of getting harassed by their peers. The person being bullied may experience depression, social anxiety, sleeping problems, loss of interest in activities they used to like, and eating. The psychological effects for the bullied include suicidal thoughts and behaviors. There are three things parents and schools could do to cut down being bullied; keep an eye on your child’s social media networks,
When the bully takes it too far, the victim snaps and retaliates by fighting him/her back physically or verbally. Not many victims does this for fear of retaliation; nonetheless some victims are brave enough to fight back. The effects of bullying will affect the victim’s future as they grow up to become adults. If this issue continues, he/she has a right to report the incident or fight back their bullies. All forms of bullying, including cyber-bullying, are considered intolerable and criminal at school.
In today’s world bullying has changed drastically, from Romeo and Juliet drawing swords to ganging up on people and beating them. Cyberbullying has become a way to bully “among young people” (Kids Health). In Romeo and Juliet the characters have probably never heard the term cyber bully, instead they just banter with the enemy and draw swords at each other. In the novel shattering glass, electronics such as computers or even iPods were barely owned by the normal population, so cyberbullying was not really heard of although it existed at the time. In today’s world electronics are very prominent, making “abuse” (Kids Health) very easy as there are “[n]o longer limits” (Kids Health) to cyberbullying.

The teacher and other students will laugh and forget about the remark within a few minutes but it will stick with the learning disabled student for quite possibly the whole day.
Kids have only seen and grown up around violence, so violence is what they result to. Psychologist, Patrick Ewing, the author of “Kids Who Kill” provides information that “Knighton has only vague memories of beatings by his father” suggesting that Knighton was always surrounded by abuse (Traver 2). Since Knighton and other kids are raised poorly, it shouldn’t be a shock that they treat others horribly due to their challenging childhood. “Young people committing seemingly motiveless killings were themselves sexually or physically abused,” says Patrick Ewing, suggest that many of these kids are victims to abuse (Traver 2). We see these kids as cold hearted and ruthless when in all actuality, they need help to recover.
Everyone gets frustrated, but sometimes caretakers of mentally disabled patients take their frustrations out on the people. This is mainly in regards to children, although it does happen to older ones as well. The reason this happens is because mentally disabled ones are easy targets.

Some reasons, of many, is that hazing is not being reported, is because the victims of hazing see it as a right of passage (act of initiation, a trial).

On the negative effects on lying and how it could effect the mission. Lying can hurt the people around you and also hurt yourself. Lying is easily shown among adolescents, as children, parents have always taught their kids that lying is a bad habit and should not be encouraged making lying no longer a bad habit because they witness the lies that are coming out of everyone’s mouth. There are two types of lies, there’s the usual white lie that doesn’t seem as bad, also there’s the severe lie that hurts the person or effects the workplace on how the lie was told. Getting into trouble is a situation that everyone tries to avoid, and who we try to avoid, it’s certain that we try to avoid getting in trouble with the authority, what I consider being the authority is
In the eyes of these children, bullying is “when someone is doing mean or hurtful things to another person”. When being bullied, most children thought that the bully did not like them.

After doing this research, it was seen that the Government is in fact addressing the matter of bullying.
