Effects of bullying

The Effect on Bullies ƒ

    • Adults who bullied as children have higher rates of substance abuse (including alcohol, drugs, and cigarettes), domestic violence, and other violent crime


    • Bullies identified by age 8 are six times more likely to be convicted of a crime by the time they reach age 24 and five times more likely to end up with a serious criminal record by age 30


      • Bullies achieve less academically, occupationally, and personally


    • ƒ Bullies can be quite popular in middle school, but by the time they get to high school bullies are less popular. In adulthood, they tend to have few friends and appear to perpetuate the cycle of violence in their children by rewarding aggression


    • Bullies have more negative attitudes about school and tend to pass those attitudes on to their children.49 ƒ One study showed bullies have higher rates of suicide than their targets
