"Age appears to influence bullying behavior in specific ways. Younger bullies tend to defy authority figures, be disruptive in class, and behave aggressively; older bullies display more qualities associated with anxiety, depression, and social withdrawal."
"The consequences of bullying can be serious and long-lasting. Young people who are bullied are at increased risk for negative psychological and emotional impacts including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, alcohol and drug abuse, hostility, delinquency, self-harming behavior (particularly for girls), and violent or criminal behavior (particularly for boys). Those who are severely bullied are also statistically more likely to attempt or commit suicide, and studies have shown that suicidal ideations are particularly common among bully-victims. Bullying can trigger mental health problems in victims who did not previously have any, and it can exacerbate problems in young people with existing mental health issues. Research has also shown that bullying victims tend to suffer declines in academic performance."

Conclusion (Call To Action)
"By 2015 all fifty US states had enacted antibullying laws. While the specifics of these laws vary from state to state, most such statutes share some common elements, including purpose statements that declare why the law was passed and how it is to be applied, scope statements that specify the range of social or physical environments covered by the law, lists of prohibited bullying behaviors, and protocols for the reporting and investigation of bullying incidents."
"Victimization rates were higher for female students (22.3 percent) than male students (15.6 percent). A 2017 report prepared by the National Center for Education Statistics found higher victimization rates among middle school students (31 percent of sixth graders and 22 percent of eighth graders) than older students (16 percent of eleventh graders and 15 percent of twelfth graders) during the 2015–2016 school year."
"Victims may also experience physical symptoms such as sleep disruptions, chronic pain, and psychosomatic symptoms such as headaches, stomach aches, heart palpitations, and dizziness. Bullying victims also tend to produce higher levels of the stress-related hormone cortisol,"
"A 2015 article published in the JAMA Pediatrics journal found that state statutes with explicit and detailed descriptions of prohibited conduct and clearly stated legal consequences for offenders had stronger associations with reduced bullying rates."
