Children who are being bullied in school may suffer the consequences well into adulthood

Children who are being bullied in school may suffer the consequences well into adulthood. A study, recently published in the journal Psychological Science, which monitored more than 300 US males from grade 1 all the way into their early thirties, indicates that individuals who were bullied as children were more likely to be less optimistic about their future, feel more unfairly treated by others and experience financial difficulties, as well as being at an increased risk of poor health, including severe cardiovascular problems, as adults.
