Learn How to Deal with and Prevent Bullying
Bullying is a serious matter especially for those who have to endure it. It can affect victims’ self-esteems, performances, and can even lead them to suicide. Though school-aged kids are more prone to bully and being bullied, bullying can take place anywhere and within any age group. Dictionary.org defines a bully as an overbearing person who habitually badgers and intimidates smaller or weaker people. Although this definition, as many others, uses weaker people to describe those who are being bullied, the weaker people, particularly in terms of emotional wellbeing, are those who do the bullying. Many times, bullies face the same issues as their victims; however help is available for both groups. Following are books available at Birmingham Public Library and online resources to provide an understanding of what bullying is, the effects, and how to it can be prevented and solved.
