Physically: They will have scars, bruises, that they will cover up and not show anyone. Intellectually it may stop them going to school or work, children wont be telling their parents making it worse for themselves. Intellectually: Being bullied will slow down someone's aspirations, with children it may stop them going to school and with adults they may not go to work due to embarrassment. Adults are more likely to overcome bullying rather than children. Emotionally: Bullying can lower self esteem and can lead to depression and anxiety.

3 star(s)

This report is all about the affects that 5 lifestyle factors can have on the each area of the PIES.
