Bullying Today: Episode 7
Bullying is as old as mankind. But today’s technological world means that bullies can continue to harass you even once you remove yourself from their location. Bullying today is a 24/7 activity. This is a particular concern for young adults and school children who are closely connected with multiple devices twenty four hours a day. Habits of bullying in childhood, whether thoughtless or carefully planned, can become habits of bullying into adulthood. On the other hand, once some adults encounter bullies outside of school life, either in their workplace or home environments, they can often rethink their former behaviour and feel deep regret.
Should we intervene when bullying occurs? When and how? What are the long term consequences of being a bully or a victim of bullying? Today’s podcast looks at bullying today and what parents can do about it.
