Does bullying cause problems in later years?

Key statement

Unfortunately studies have found a connection between being bullied in childhood and problems in later years.

Comment

There are a number of ways in which childhood bullying may be linked to problems in adult life. It has been suggested that some victims are brutalised by their experiences and go on to become bullying or abusive adults. It has also been suggested that some bullies graduate to more serious adult criminality. However, it should be remembered that the majority of people who are involved in bullying at school (either as bully or victim) go on to have happy, productive adult lives.

The size of the proportion who are not so lucky is unclear, but there are many people who believe that their lives have been blighted by childhood bullying. Some of them have described the effects in the testimonies they have submitted to our bully box.
