The Dangerous Consequences of Verbal Bullying Among Students.

Every child is entitled to receive an education and to feel safe while doing so.

Samantha Di Done, supervisor of Children Now, discusses the devastating effects that verbal bullying can have on childrens’ physical and psychological well-being. Given these serious effects (such as loss of confidence, depression, even suicide), she advocates that verbal bullying be treated seriously, whether the verbal bullying takes place on school property or off school property.
