Bullying has negative impacts that last decades after childhood
Bullying is characterized by repeated hurtful actions by children of a similar age, where the victim finds it difficult to defend themselves.
A new study by King’s College London examined the long-term impact of bullying. Alarmingly, researchers found that the negative social, physical and mental health effects of childhood bullying are still evident nearly 40 years later. This is the first study to look at how bullying affects people after early adulthood.

I think that a person does not have to be a bleeding heart liberal to recognize there is some truth here. I know that various experiences of my childhood echo through my life to this day.

Our society has also come to recognize the potentially long term devastating effects of Post Traumatic Disorder. I think we are all aware of vietnam vets whose lives have been deformed by their experiences.

So, why would the experience of racism be any different? Why would we believe that some punitively color blind society allows us to say the past is past?

I am pretty sure that the impact of the holocaust resonates through the Jewish community even among those who who were not there, or even had known family members who suffered from this event.

Do we blame vietnam vets for being whiners? Do we tell Jews to "get over it?"{ So why would would we foster such attitudes with regard to the invidious racism of this country that has certainly had a profound and enduring corrosive impact on the black community?

Quote:
The number one reason bullies hate their victims is because the victims tell on them,” the flyer reads. “Telling makes the bully want to retaliate. Tell an adult only when a real injury or crime (theft of something valuable) has occurred. Would we keep our friends if we tattled on them?”

That’s just one pearl of wisdom administration officials offer at the Zeman Elementary School in Lincoln, Nebraska. Here are some more red-state pearls of wisdom at Zeman Elementary:

Quote:
Rule #1: Refuse to get mad.

Rule #2: Treat the person who is being mean as if they are trying to help you.

Rule #3: Do not be afraid.

Rule #4: Do not verbally defend yourself.

Rule #5: Do not attack.

Rule #6: If someone physically hurts you, just show you are hurt; do not get angry.

Rule #7: Do not tell on bullies.

Rule #8: Don’t be a sore loser.

Rule #9: Learn to laugh at yourself and not get “hooked” by put-downs.
