On the methods bullies use, Myers said, “Whether it is cyber bullying, whether it be direct bullying. Usually, there is a full process that may go with some of the bullying. As much as we come up with avenues to address it, unfortunately, there may be just as many creative avenues that people will use to bully victims.”
When it comes to talking to children on handling bullying, Mark Myers says, “It’s important for parents to get kids to understand that bullying doesn’t have to be being put and shoved inside a locker and it doesn’t take on that form. To have enough confidence in themselves; that ‘Something is wrong about this exchange that I am having with this person. Something makes me feel uncomfortable enough that I need to recognize that this is just not acceptable.’ I think that’s the first thing. It’s empowering a kid.”
As for long term effects of bullying, Myers said, “There’s significant long term effects and numerous ones that children could experience through their childhood that may [give] themselves the possibility of entering into bullies is certainly a possibility. When you talk about a child that feels he is being picked on, on a regular basis, there’s certainly going to be a lot of anger in that child growing up. Most things are going to be presented and most things are going to be coming out in other relationships that he or she has whether it be their own children or husbands and wives. They are certainly going to be playing a role as far as the experiences that they’ve had being victims of bullying.”
