Description

Have you or someone you know been a victim of bullying? The Devastating Effects Of Bullying Childhood bullying is on the rise, according to some studies, but can it actually cause death? According to the CDC, suicide accounts for 4,400 deaths per year in young people. This, of course, doesn't take the number of missed suicide attempts into consideration. A Yale University study found that those who are being bullied are estimated to be between 2-9 times more likely to contemplate suicide than those who aren't being bullied. ABC News reported that every day 160,000 kids stay home from school due to fear of bullying. Many high-profile bullying cases have garnered attention to the link between bullying and suicide across the globe in recent years. While, in the past, bullying could easily be brushed off as "kids being kids" or just a part of growing up, it can no longer be ignored. From children being bullied for their sexuality to the types of toys they play with, it's becoming a very real problem that can't always be brushed off by ignoring the tormentor. The New Age Of Bullying Social networking sites and texting have been blamed for the recent rise in bullying, especially since these add a level of anonymity not felt or seen in the past. Pictures, messages, and posts can spread like wildfire and what goes on online can infiltrate the classroom and the "real world." In the following book, we'll go over some of the most recent child suicide cases instigated by bullying. While most cases are those who were teenagers at the time of their deaths, some have been as young as 11- and 12-years-old. By learning what to look for in a victim and gaining awareness of early warning signs, it might be possible to prevent the tragedy before it happens. And with more awareness and education on the parts of teachers, parents, and other adults involved in the child's life, bullying could even be curtailed in the future. Time For Change After reading these stories, hopefully it will shed some more light on how serious bullying is and you will feel inspired to join others and take a stand against it.

About Alexander Scott

Who is Alexander Scott? Alexander Scott is fascinated with anything that stirs him up emotionally and sparks his curiosity. Whether that is true crime, amazing survival stories or people stepping up to be heroes, he loves it all. Paranormal encounters, stories of personal triumph and even miracle births are on his radar of interests. He likes to write shorter books that get to the core of events. Think anything that you can read on your lunch hour that takes you away from the day-to-day monotony of life. You won't find disturbing images inside any of his books. Some of the stories are shocking enough without needing to physically see what the crime scenes looked like. Our imaginations are more than enough. He isn't going for a shock and awe effect. He doesn't claim to be an expert on serial killers or true crime and he isn't some retired detective. Just a regular guy that likes to read and write about events that make you realize your everyday life might not be as bad as you think. When you read stories about parents killing their kids it makes you go home and hug, not yell, at your children. When you read stories about people who overcome adversity, the problems you have in life don't seem so big after all. You would think some of the stories you read are Hollywood productions but sadly or amazingly, depending on the situation, they are real life stories about real life people: People that consciously hurt others or put their own lives in danger to save others. That is the mystery that Alexander contemplates all the time. Why do some sacrifice their lives for others while some intentionally take others' lives? What is it about being human that drives either choice? Alexander will continue to research life changing events and create these books for your enjoyment. He hopes they captivate your interest and makes you realize that life is precious so enjoy it.show more
