Bullying And Itís Impact On Kids

by: Alya Nuri

This is a major problem kids are facing now days. Kids are committing suicide due to bullying. Our world is facing a major issue, and I think we need to bring more awareness to bullying.

Who is Phoebe Prince?

I am going to share with all of you the story of Phoebe Prince who was a 15 year old girl. She was a teenager that many people bullied, even her own boyfriend. She just moved to America from Ireland, with her family in the fall of 2009. She moved to America with her mother and 4 siblings. Phoebe had been bullied by two different groups. The bullied her because of quarrels with other girls over relationships with 2 boys. Her aunt had told the school prior to her arrival that she was an easy target for bullying, and had been bullied in Ireland.

On January 14, 2010, Phoebe had been taunted and harassed for the last time, at around 4:30 pm, her sister found her hung, dead. The people who bullied her were so mean that they even made rude and mean comments on her facebook memorial page. What kind of world are we living in, when we donít even have sorrow feelings after the person passes away?

Investigators report no later than a few months, then found 9 people in suspicion. There were seven girls and two boys who were responsible for all this. The 9 teens were in trouble as a result of all this.

It was such a sad case; imagine that 10 people ruined their lives. Phoebe killed herself, and no longer has a life, and the other 9 will be charged by the court for their crimes, simply for something that should have never occurred.

This and many other cases are the reasonís why I wrote my book on Thing Every Kid Should Know Bullying. It is a book that has a story and as well as facts and tips. It teaches one all about what bullying is, how to avoid it, what to do incase your being bullied. I am very passionate about this topic, and really want to bring awareness. Please share this book with all of the kids out there, so that we can make a differenceÖ
