Bullying, A Social Media’s Effect
Bullying is defined as any unwanted aggressive behavior that occurs repeatedly perpetrated by a person or group of people; it could be physical, verbal and emotional. Shana Friedman, Psychotherapist at Baptist Health South Florida, highlights cyberbullying as a problem brought by new generations.
The introduction of social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, among others) changes the course of how we all live, but now consciousness about bullying has been increasing.
Psychotherapist Aimee Hernandez says children and teens who are isolated, deal with disabilities or look different can be targeted, but basically everyone can be a victim of bullies that don't see calling people's names is hurtful.
