We live within a society and no matter how we try to separate our self from it we will fail because society make us what we are and determine our identity in the life. Therefore, any problem happen in it will definitely affect us one way or another. One of these problems is bullying. Bullying definition is unwanted; aggressive behavior among school-aged children that involves using power and violence to satisfy a certain desire or obtain some benefits. There are three types of bullying, the first one is verbal: mean that Bullies do not have to be Burly to cause harm because they can tease their victims by talking, like make fun of them and call them names, or maybe knowing something sensitive about them and threaten to spread it out if they did not obey them. The Second type is social bullying; in this type, bullies try to hurt the reputation and the relationships of the victims by tell other children to stay away from them or by embarrassing them in public. The last type is physical bullying; however, this is the most influential and the most terrifying for victims because now we are not talking about hurt feeling no! We are talking about cause bad physical damage and deliver pain and suffering. At this kind, bullies start to transform to Remorseless person that may do anything, from kicking and hitting to cause Permanent damage. However, in bullying, we do not have just two element like the Bully and the victim no! Because we have also other kids involved in bullying, but they are not engaged directly in bullying though they may devote the behavior, by witnessing it. There are three kind of witnesses; the first is kids who assist: these kids may not start bullying or lead to such behavior but they are encouraging it by just standing and watching without doing anything, so this action will help bullies to continue their doing because they know that no one is going stop them. The second kind is kids who reinforce: these kids are also not directly involve in bullying but they give bullies god audience, by laughing and mocking or maybe by taking pictures of victims while being bullied, this action will make bullies feel more power and greatness so they continue their behavior thinking that they are heroes. The last one is Kids who defend: these kind of kids cannot watch someone being beaten without doing anything. Therefore, they stand for victims and try to protect them and guard them. in contrast this kind of kids are the major shield against bullying, because bullies will think twice before hitting somebody fearing that other kids will help the victim and that they will over number him. Nevertheless, the major question of this social problem is what is the effect of bullying?
Well, bullying have major effect on bullied, those who bully, and who witness bullying But of course the most Disastrous consequences is on the victims of bullying, like depression and anxiety, because they will always think of pain and humiliation waiting for them when they leave their safe house And go to their frightening School. Furthermore, there are effect on their Academic progress, because bullies like to target smarter students and intelligent one, by calling them names like nerds or teachers favorite pet, so this well make them skip class or even drop out of school. However, the most worrying thing is that some children will even think of suicide. and this has proven in the results of the survey conducted by the World Health Organization to school students in UAE in the year 2010 for age group of 13 to 15 years, which showed that the percentage of students who thought seriously about suicide one or more times during the year amounted to 15.5 percent, including 16 percent of females and 14 percent of males.
