Example text

Why are children reluctant to report bullying? For some (particularly older children), negative messages about “tattling” or “snitching” may cause them to think twice about reporting victimization.

For other children, their reluctance to report bullying to school staff may reflect a lack of confidence in teachers’ and other school authorities’ handling of bullying incidents.

S. (and around the world). In one of the few studies to examine urban, suburban, and rural differences in rates of bullying, Tonya Nansel and her colleagues (2001) found that students in grades 6 through 10 were just as likely to be bullied in urban, suburban, town, and rural areas. They found only very small differences in students’ reports of bullying others, with suburban youth being slightly less likely than others to say that they bullied their peers “sometimes” or more often and rural youth being slightly more likely than others to have ever bullied their peers.

For some, the devastating effects of bullying may be felt long after the bullying has ended. For example, in a study of young adults, Dan Olweus found that boys who were bullied in junior high school were likely to suffer from low self-esteem and depression a decade after the bullying had ended (Olweus, 1993b).
