SORT BY Relevancy
At some point in our lives we have all battled, struggled and fought a very common enemy among us, and especially around this time of the year, and its depression. There's a great difference between sadness and deep depression. It's the kind that tends to linger much longer than expected and creeps up on us like fog on a cloudy rainy day. The key question is how is follower of Christ to respond? What resources are out there for those going through such a dark and difficult time in their lives? How can we avoid the temptation of battling in silence? And often times there is a misunderstanding of this subject simply due to a lack of understanding. We must place our full trust and hope in God to help us as we learn together how to battle through those seasons of depression.

School Bullying StatisticsSchool bullying statistics in the United Stats show that about one in four kids in the U.S. are bullied on a regular basis. Between cyber bullying and bullying at school, the school bullying statistics illustrate a huge problem with bullying and the American school system.In a recent SAFE survey, teens in grades sixth through 10th grade are the most likely to be involved in activities related to bullying. About thirty percent of students in the United States are involved in bullying on a regular basis either as a victim, bully or both. These school bullying statistics show what a problem bullying of all kinds in the United States has become. The recent school bullying statistics show that cyber bullying is becoming increasingly prevalent on school property as well as involving students even when they are not at school. Because of this growing number of kids affected by bullying, more and more schools throughout the country are cracking down on the measures taken to stop bullying.
Bullying may be defined as the activity of repeated, aggressive behavior intended to hurt another person, physically, mentally or emotionally. Bullying is characterized by an individual behaving in a certain way to gain power over another person. It can be classified into four types:
Physical, verbal, and relational bullying are most prevalent in primary school and could also begin in preschool. Cyber-bullying, arguably the most destructive and common form today, is more common in secondary school than in primary school. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bullying#cite_note-:0-10
If you hit your kid, you give them a message that it’s okay to hit others. And a new study examining the case histories of almost 2,500 American children confirms that spanking breeds bullies. Lead author Dr. Catherine Taylor of Tulane University... factored out the influences such as maternal mental health and use of drugs, domestic violence, neglect, income, age, race and education. And spanking emerged as the most important factor in determining which three-year-old children developed into aggressive five-year-olds. ("Mothers' Spanking of 3-Year-Old Children and Subsequent Risk of Children's Aggressive Behavior", C. A. Taylor, J. A. Manganello, S. J. Lee, J. C. Rice, Pediatrics 2010; 125:5 e1057-e1065; published ahead of print April 12, 2010, doi:10.1542/peds.2009-2678)

October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and we will recognize it today with Dr. William Copeland, Associate Professor at Duke University Medical Center.
Dr. Copeland recently wrote an article (published online 2/20, 2013 In JAMA Psychiatry) on the long-term effects of bullying behavior. The findings as to what extent bullying can affect a person’s adult functioning are alarming and should be a “call to arms,” to create effective bullying prevention programs in all schools and communities.
Dr. William Copeland is a clinical psychologist and epidemiologist, who trained at the University of Vermont and completed his clinical internship at Duke University Medical Center. He is currently an Associate Professor at the Center for Developmental Epidemiology in the department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University Medical Center.
Dr. Copeland’s research program is supported by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the National Institute of Mental Health, and the National Alliance for Research in Schizophrenia and Depression (NARSAD).
