Bullying By Sibling Can Affect A Child’s Mental Health
ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Bullying by a brother or sister can cause a child to become depressed, anxious or angry. Researcher Corinna Jenkins Tucker with the University of New Hampshire says being repeatedly bullied by a sibling can be just as damaging as bullying by someone outside a child’s family. The study analyzed interviews with more than 35-hundred kids and teens about their exposure to different kinds of sibling aggression. Parents need to recognize when one of their children is always the victim while another son or daughter is always the one doing the bullying.
