Bullying is not a rite of passage. It is not sticks and stones anymore. Bullying hurts so much lives and puts teenagers into such a state where they feel they need to take their own lives.
London, UK (PRWEB) March 26, 2014
From the many and quite recent bully-related suicide reports from every part of the world, it has become quite clear that the connection between suicide and bullying is getting stronger. While bullying may seem like a minor and childish behavior to many, it has gradually risen into one of the leading causes of suicide and other very negative effects among teenagers. To put it more clearly, many victims of bullying are turning to suicide as the way out of the terror, humiliation and pain caused by bullies. NoBullying releases today the ultimate guide to Bullying and Suicide.
The article mentions the sad fact that according to a recent study that took place in Britain, half of the teenage suicides were discovered to be related to bullying. This same study showed that the teenagers who were more at risk were girls between the ages of 10 and 14. Another study suggested that 30% of all students are either bullies or victims of bullying. It was also discovered that a significant number of students avoid school every day for fear of getting bullied.
