TVC News Nigeria gives us a report about the effects of bullying on youth.
Bullying has been a longstanding problem in schools, and its effects can be devastating for both the children who are targeted and the ones who witness it. Child rights activists have raised concerns about the issue at an event in Lagos, advising parents to be more vigilant towards behavioral changes in their children which might be due to bullying. Bullying can have a profound impact on a child’s mental and physical health. It can lead to feelings of isolation, anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. In extreme cases, it can even lead to self-harm and suicide. Witnessing bullying can also be harmful, as it can cause children to feel scared and helpless. It is important for parents to be aware of the signs of bullying.
