Recently a study published in the British Medical Journal has revealed that all those children who are terrorized during their early years of life are more prone of harming themselves in their adolescence age when other children of same age group are calm and disciplined.
For revealing the facts, the researchers conducted few programs in the schools and noticed that half of the 12-year-olds who harm themselves were known to be frequently bullied at their home or in the school premises. In this regard, the researchers are trying to conduct more and more effective programs so that they could help save children from getting harassed.
The mental health issues that were reported in the adolescents, facing bullying in young age, included cutting or biting arms, pulling out clumps of hair, a child banging its head against walls or attempting suicide.
Another research conducted at King's College London also showed similar results stating that children suffering with mental health problems are at a higher risk of self-harming them in their later years of life.
According to the authors of this study, there is a great need for making efforts in schools that simply and solely emphasize in enhancing the ways in which children try to cope with their emotional distress.
As written by them: "Bullying by peers is a major problem during the early school years. This study found that before 12 years of age a small proportion of children frequently exposed to this form of victimisation already deliberately harmed themselves and in some cases attempted to take their own lives. Frequent victimisation by peers increased the risk of self harm".
Researchers also stated that bullying in such early age could result into some long-term implications like any kind of psychological problem, serious injury or even death.
