Bullying a Growing Problem
If you are a parent, you know how problematic, devastating, and sad bullying can be. Even if you're not a parent, you were a kid once and probably experienced a form of bullying at some point. The issue is in the news all the time too. Just this morning
, a teenager in New York was laid to rest after killing herself last month. Her family says she was the victim of a cyber bullying campaign.
Coming up today on Portland's Afternoon News
, we'll hear from an expert at OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital
, who helps kids cope with bullying. Dr. Ajit Jetmalani
will explain the difference between teasing and bullying (it can be a very fine line) and talk specifically about cyber bullying and how it's different from the more traditional forms.
He has a lot to say about the topic, so he'll also be on The OHSU Effect
tomorrow morning at 8:00 here on KXL. I hope you'll tune in.
