Bullied Girls Prone to the Risk of Substance Exploitation

Bullied Girls

A new-fangled study has brought into being that teenage girls who are targets of oppression are more likely to involve in affluence use as an outcome of bullying-related melancholy in comparison to the boys.

Bullying is a grave problem among teenagers. Preceding study has shown that it is connected with aloneness, hopelessness and suicide. But no former national studies have recognized depression as a description for the association between ill-treatment from bullying and substance usage.

Jeremey Luk of the University of Washington circulated his results of a study which was the first of its kind to tie depression and substance abuse.

According to Dan Olweus, the creator of the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program, : A person is bullied when he or she is wide-open, constantly and over time, to undesirable actions on the part of one or more other persons, and he or she has difficulty in protecting himself or herself.

Bullying can be vocal, physical, social, or voluptuous in nature. Cyber bullying is prevailing in the society which means a child, preteen or teen is tortured, threatened, strained, disgraced, ashamed or otherwise targeted by another child, preteen or teen through the Internet, communicating and digital machineries or mobile phones.
