Bullied children and kids who bully others have more health problems when they grow up than kids who aren't part of the bullying cycle, a study finds. They're also more likely to have financial problems, including difficulty keeping a job.

Maybe that's why they got bullied to start with.

I wish this study was more specific on the kinds of bullying these children were exposed to. It has to make a difference. This just shows how important it is for parents to be pro-active, as well as the schools.

-About one-quarter of the children said they had been bullied. Another 8 percent said they had bullied others. And 6 percent said they had been on both the sending and receiving end.-

Certainly indicates a social problem, one which adults should pay more attention to and rectify as soon as possible.

To healthy minded adults, this ought to be obvious. Family counseling can sometimes help. It all depends on how willing people are to change. Certainly, this issue effects our world at large.

Bullying has become a world-wide dilemma. Thanks for the new article, Cal!

I believe this to be so true and if you really stop and think about the emotional roller coaster that these poor kids are on, it isn't of any wonder that they would have non productive lives as an adult. Abuse is abuse and anyone who says that it don't hurt and causes no harm, they are so wrong. This is very life altering, deprives them of self esteem the list goes on. This really needs to stop for the health of our future. Stop bullying in it's steps.

Entonces tendrá problemas de adulto el que es acosador pero tambien el que es acosado entonces todos los niños van a ser unos malos adultos? No lo creo.

Thank you Cal for sharing, even if I'm not sure for "correctness" of the results...

Not surprising, traumas like bullying have to have an effect in adulthood.
