Bullying is an issue that has been affecting many in the world today. It takes place in many forms some of which are direct and include physical harm on the victim. Verbal bullying involves name calling and insults or threats being directed at the victim and may also involve emotional bullying where the victim’s emotions are targeted by the bully. Other forms of bullying may be indirect where the harm is not caused by the person directly but it still ends up affecting the person.

The impact of bullying is huge. It causes unhappiness and distress; it can even result in suicide. For children bullied at school, the effects can last long into adulthood, affecting the rest of their lives.

Being bullied at school can cause a child stress and a number of physical or mental health problems. Often children will not tell anyone they are being bullied. Some symptoms or changes in behaviour which might alert a parent, doctor or teacher to the possibility of bullying include:

Physical health symptoms. A child may have tummy ache, or headaches as a result of the stress. Physical symptoms may go away at weekends or in holiday times.
Not sleeping as well, or suddenly starting to have nightmares or night terrors.
Not wanting to go to school, or playing truant from school.
Changing the route or journey to school.
Not doing as well at school as they were before.
Starting to stammer.
Bedwetting (in younger children).
Unexplained cuts and bruises, or damaged possessions with no explanation.
Being more worried or anxious, or starting to have panic attacks.
Appearing to be low or depressed.
Self-harming behaviour, or suicide attempts.
