LONDON: The negative impact of childhood bullying has now been found to impact people well beyond their teens. It is even evident nearly 40 years later, according to a new King's College London research.
The study published on Friday tracked 7,771 children whose parents provided information on their exposure to bullying when they were aged 7 and 11. The children were then followed up until the age of 50. "Our study shows that the effects of bullying are still visible nearly four decades later. The impact is persistent and pervasive , with health, social and economic consequences lasting well into adulthood,'' said Ryu Takizawa, lead author of the study.
Just over a quarter of children in the study (28%) had been bullied occasionally , and 15% bullied frequently — similar to rates in the UK today. Louise Arseneault from the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College said, "We need to move away from any perception that bullying is just an inevitable part of growing-up . We must be aware that what happens in the school playground can have long-term repercussions for children.''
At 50, individuals bullied as children were at an increased risk of depression and suicidal thoughts. They were likely to have lower educational levels and also more likely to be unemployed and earning less.
