Anyone can be a bully

Anyone can be a bully | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Julie Hertzog, the director of the Pacer National Bullying Prevention Center:

Today, it’s not quite as simple as that. Casting the bully as a physically intimidating outcast isn’t necessarily accurate, Hertzog said.

“There is no particular profile,” she said. “It used to be that people thought that kids who bullied had very low self-esteem, but we’ve found just the opposite to be true. A lot of times they are social leaders.”

Jessica Byrd's comment, April 11, 10:23 AM
Doctors now-a-days think that having a mental disorder can be worse than physical illnesses. Because mental ilness in a child can affect their brain so much it puts a lot of stress and anxiety on that child which intern can lead to many medical risks on top of the mental disorder. Chronic stress is a major symptom of any disorder but chronic stress and also lead to an increased risk of heart disease. Also when a child has a mental disability it more than likely that that child is also going through mental and physical abuse from those around whether it is intentional or not. People now worry that if nothing is done then that is leading our children down a road where mental health problem are sure to worsen.

Why Daydreaming Isn’t a Waste of Time

Why Daydreaming Isn’t a Waste of Time | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Parents and teachers expend a lot of energy getting kids to pay attention, concentrate, and focus on the task in front of them. What adults don’t do, according to University of Southern California education professor Mary Helen Immordino-Yang, is teach children the value of the more diffuse mental activity that characterizes our inner lives: daydreaming, remembering, reflecting.
