The Reading / Listening - Level 0

A study says bullied children are more likely to have mental health problems when they are adults. They can be depressed and stressed. They sometimes try to hurt themselves. People think bullying is a normal part of childhood. A researcher said bullying is not a harmless part of growing up. He said it has serious effects.



Bullying is a worldwide problem. Many children do not go to school. Their exam results become bad so they do not go to university. They sometimes have serious illnesses. They have problems with jobs and relationships. Parents must do more to stop bullying. They must teach their children how to be with other children.
