Negative Psychological Effects of Homework: How It Affects High School Students Health Introduction Bullying has been problematic for many years and has taken various forms throughout the course of time. The most common form of bullying previously included verbal and physical actions in sometimes violent ways.

The media plays a huge role in teaching children about the world they live in, which has developed cruelly. Technology can turn from good to bad in the matter of minutes. For example, the main contributor of bullying is cyber bullying. Cyber bullying is when someone one uses the Internet to bully a person, which usually occurs through sending messages of threats to others. “ Over twenty-five percent of adolescents and teens have been bullied repeatedly through their cell phones or the Internet” ().
Offenders tend to act out their fantasies. In extreme cases, bullying can become disastrous for teenagers, resulting in long term consequences. Teenagers feel forced to protect themselves by carrying weapons for protection or seek revenge.

Authors Jeffrey Jones and Nancy Deutsch write in, The Journal of Early Adolescence, about teenage identity and social development. Jones and Deutsch claim that identity and social development occur through tasks that require processing of complex social environments in close proximity (Jones & Deutsch, 2013, p. 18). Jones and Deutsch state, “Institutions such as after-school programs can influence social-emotional development through organizational and interpersonal practices…” (Jones & Deutsch, 2013, p. 17). Turkle believes social media interaction contradicts traditional adolescent development processes outlined by Jones and Deutsch. Instead of negotiating social environments in-person, teens are managing digital avatars of themselves to negotiate idealistically created social lives.
