The effects of bullying can really lead to depression and in some cases suicidal thoughts. Bullying really robs a person of their sense of self and their basic feelings of security.
Different types of bullying might include text bullying that send threatening messages or might forward pictures of the person in compromising situations.
There was a case about at freshman in a New Jersey college that ended his life because of the humiliation that he experienced as a result of supposed friends transferring these images of the freshman engaging in gay sex.
Cyber bullying can also be devastating because the bullying never ends. With cyber bullying the target of the bullying is harassed on the internet in social networking sites.
There was also a case in which the mother of a teen that went to school with the target sent her derogatory messages while she posed as the target’s ex boyfriend.
This young girl also ended her life which is really sad. These different types of bullying cases have led many school districts across the country to create an anti bullying policy and many have a no tolerance rule that allows no bullying in the schools at all.
