It is said that bullying will make them more tough; however, why would you want someone to be tough and stand up for themselves that way? Even though bullying “is a common part of student’s childhood,” Students that are being bullied develop several problems. According to Wen-Chi, Shyuemeng, and Dih-Ling, “student victims can get social anxiety” (73). They are frightened to make new friends, apprehensive about getting laughed at, and feeling judged. This causes the person being bullied to be more distant.

Bullies are at risk for problems to, they may become violent and as they get older they could possibly have a criminal record. They could possibly end up loosing their group of friends as they get older. They could even ending up failing school and not having a good job when they grow up. Some bullies act they way they do because they have been hurt by bullies in the past even a parent or another adult.
The lack of parental attention causes a feeling of insecurity leading someone to acquit bullying. Unfortunately, adult role moles, parents, teachers, coaches, can build up tension in a student to generate them to bully. Students that are neglected, have divorced parents, or are around the influence of drugs/alcohol are more controlling and impulsive by nature. Those who have younger siblings are more suitable to bully in order to feel empowered.

A bully is someone who picks on other people, because they think it is the way to solve their problems. There are many types of bullying, there is physical, verbal, and mental. Children that are ages five through eleven began using verbal abuse and some even use physical abuse (Garrett 33). People estimated that one hundred and sixty thousand students miss school every day, and twenty-eight million missed school days per year, due to fear of being bullied (Garrett 36). Six million boys and four million girls are involved in fights from being bullied or bullying others (Garrett 33).
Schools and communities too often stand idly by while people struggle, sometimes outright mocking the victim, or, in some cases, being told to suck it up. How can we as a society allow these children to abuse one another? Is that what we want people to grow up to think is somehow how the real world works? The real world does not work like school, and the bully and bullied alike are going to run into severe trouble down the line for what they experienced since no one ever taught them any better. Teachers, parents, and the community need to learn the signs of bullying and the ways to effectively handle bullying the moment it is spotted, or only more and more children are going to come out scarred and unprepared for reality, if they are lucky enough to make it out alive.

Society must take active measures to end this ongoing injustice of students and help school yard bullies in understanding the effects of their actions.

In extreme cases, some short-term effects of bullying could be sleep disorders, rage, poor appetite, depression and many more. Nobullying.com reports that, "83 percent of girls, and 79 percent of boys report being bullied either in school or online,” (“Bullying Statistics 2014”). Why is it that such large portions of students are being bullied and are negatively affected by it, yet it continues? These children are being physically affected by the negative treatment by their peers.

This is Unacceptable bullying is abuse and it should be stopped.
Their environment can have violence. Growing up around violence can mentally cause the person to be influenced to be mean to others. When children grow up around their parents yelling and calling each other names, the child then becomes aware to that kind of hospitality, then later treat others the way they grew up. Another example, why people become bullies because they may have gotten bullied from someone else, and then became a bully themselves after experiencing that. Bullies sometimes don’t choose just to be mean to others, there is usually a reason why they became that way.

Bolton and Graeve both stated that “Bullies generally are strong, confident, and aggressive, much more so than their victims, who, by comparison, tend to be weak, timid, and nonassertive” (20). The victims sometimes can turn from being bullied to becoming a bully. The solutions to these problems are to ensure the quality of preventing bully attacks on students before they strike.
