What Are the Effects of Bullying?

Effects of bullying

Bullying behavior can have negative consequences for both the bully and the victim.

Studies have shown that boys identified as bullies in middle school were four times as likely as their peers to have more than one criminal conviction by age twenty-four.

Children who bully are more likely to engage in other criminal and anti-social behaviors, such as:

  • Fighting
  • Vandalism
  • Truancy
  • Dropping out of school
  • Stealing
  • Smoking
  • Alcohol/and or drug abuse

Effects on the victim

The stress from being bullied can create problems for children at school. Students may be fearful of attending school, riding the bus, using the bathroom or being alone in the hallway.

This fear and anxiety can make it difficult for the child to focus and engage in the classroom, making learning that much more difficult.

Bullying can cause children to experience fear, depression, loneliness, anxiety, low self-esteem, physical illness, and in some cases, even suicidal thoughts.
