The Terrors of Bullying According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Department of Education (ED), and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) bullying is “any unwanted aggressive behavior(s) … that involves an observed or perceived power imbalance and is repeated multiple times or is highly likely to be repeated.” Many kids use these aggressive behaviors throughout school to create terror onto other kids and make their lives purposefully miserable.

Throughout all my years in high school, bullying was a major issue. From physical fights to cyber threats, bullying comes in all shapes and sizes. Various questions can be raised regarding how to punish a bully when the only evidence is what the victim is describing. Are schools doing the most they can to prevent bullying? Why is the victim of a fight being punished in the same way as the bully?

One report shows that one of three children were victims of bullying during some point in their life, and that 10-14% of all adolescents were victims of chronic bullying for at least six months prior to participating in the survey. Children who were victims of bullying are also found to be at a higher risk of diagnoses for anxiety disorders and depression during young and middle adulthood. These victims are reported to be more likely to have lower levels of general/physical health, and lower educational acquirements than young and middle-aged adults who were not bullied (Wolke & Lereya, 2015).

The state of bullying, and how it is enacted, is constantly changing and adapting to social frameworks. Because bullies can adapt to social changes and regulations, we, as a society, should be equally adaptive in how we perceive, address, prevent, and punish bullying.
