Stop Bullying: Effects of Bullying

Pete karate chops the blue monsterBullying negatively affects both the child being victimized and the child who is the bully.

While most cases of bullying do not result in any long-term effects, the painful memories of bullying can cause victims problems in the future. For bullies, the inability to cope with issues in a healthy way may lead to serious trouble in the future. Because the possibility exists for these types of problems, bullying must be taken seriously and dealt with accordingly. It is important to stop bullying early, so both the bully and the victim do not suffer from any long term affects.

Bullies may never learn how to effectively problem solve if they are given other ways to respond when the bullying problem first arises. There are always short-term effects and if the bullying is severe enough there can also be long term effects. Children who are bullied can suffer from low self-esteem and other emotional problems and children who do the bullying are much more likely to have problems with drugs and alcohol later on in life. Bullying should not be taken frivolously as it can cause serious problems for all the children involved.

 

Being bullied is a very stressful ordeal for children. Many bullying victims are reluctant to talk about their experiences making it even harder to help them. While it is possible for children to learn to ignore and not be bothered by bullying, they are usually stressed out when bullying attacks occur. The victims of bullies often lose self-esteem, start having trouble in school, and withdraw from friends and activities. If it is not stopped and continues for long enough, children can suffer these problems permanently.

 

Bullying victims are more likely to have social and depression issues later in life. Children who were bullied may have a hard time forming friendships and fitting in with others throughout their lives. Most bullying victims suffer no long-term effects of bullying, but it can happen if nothing is done to stop the bullying early on.

 

Bullies usually have their own problems that cause them to pick on others and if they are allowed to continue bullying these issues may never be resolved. Bullies often have friends, but these relationships are destructive and only help to perpetuate bullying. The effects of bullying on bullies are usually frequent trouble in school and at home. Bullies can also suffer long-term problems if they are allowed to continue bullying others.

 

Bullies who aren’t stopped early can suffer from long term effects. A bully who’s taught appropriate ways to deal with their problems will most likely continue being aggressive and bullying others into their adult life. Bullies are more liable to commit crimes and be involved in illegal activity when they get older.

 

Help stomp out bullying. Teach your child about the negative effects of bullying from an early age.

Pete’s Monster ~ My New Friend

Pete’s Monster My New Friend, is a continuation from the first book called Pete’s Monster.

In the first book, the story ends with Pete escorts the Blue Monster to live in his older brother George’s bedroom. Even though the Blue Monster had not caused Pete any harm or concern for him to be afraid of the Blue Monster. Pete wanted the Monster out from under his bed and George’s room seemed the obvious place for the Monster to stay.

It wasn’t till in the second book, Pete’s Monster ~ My New Friend, that we watch a friendship grow.

PETE's MONSTER_My New Friend COVER resizedThe Blue Monster knocks at Pete’s bedroom door one night and asks to return to sleeping under Pete’s bed. Pete is happy that the Monster wants to come back as he missed his companion, the Blue Monster. His new friend.

Pete leaves his bedroom after lights out against his Mother’s orders. He goes into the kitchen to get his new Monster friend something to eat, after the Monster tells Pete that he is hungry.

Pete’s Monster ~ My New Friend is also a rhyming storybook. It subtly and creatively covers the topic of friendship and was created to inform children at an early age that a friend can be of any size, shape or color.

The moral in the first Pete’s Monster book is that you should never lash out and hurt anyone, (bullying) because the true person who gets hurt the most could end up being you as you could be labeled as a bully at school and no one will want to be your friend.
