into two different modes; direct and indirect. Bullying is also categorized into four types:

verbal, physical damage to property, and relational. The act of bullying has long-term

research not only because of how it clearly defines the various types of bullying, but the

This article is based on the findings of a study published in The Lancet Psychiatry. They

found that adolescents that are bullied face far worse long-term mental health effects than

adolescents that are mistreated by adults. Beyond the findings of The Lancet Psychiatry,

the article presents a call to action for the social problem of bullying through educating

the youth in programs instituted into the classroom setting as early kindergarten. If

children are taught early on that our differences should not be seen as something

negative, they believe that we can root bullying out of modern society. This article is

relevant to my research because it presents valid solutions to bullying. The article also

presents a credible study of the long-term effects of bullying.

This article is about changing the way we approach creating a safe space for children in

their home and school environments. Adults may help children who face bullying in their

school environment by instituting constant positive reinforcement in the classroom. In the

home environment, adults can provide a support system by being willing to emotionally

support and make an effort to listen to what the child has to say on a daily basis. Through

the acronym SPACE, adults can create a safe environment for children who face

bullying. This article is relevant to my research because it provides different approaches

for adults to help eradicate the long-term effects children may face from bullying.

generated article is helpful to my research because it allows me to have a deeper

understanding of the thought process of a bully and those that they harm.

This article presents two long-term studies with thousands of children across England and

the U.S. that would prove the long-term effects of bullying are worse than physical abuse

from adults. The researchers controlled any outside variables to ensure that there was no
bias in their conclusion. They concluded that children in both countries faced worse

effects from bullying overall. They also discovered that nearly half of all the children

involved in bullying also faced abuse early on, hence they are more susceptible to

becoming the targets of bullies because of their emotional instability.

targets of bullying as proved in this study. This is relevant to my research because it

provides a refreshing take on responding to bullying in the modern age.
