Bataan Cong Roman raises awareness against bullying in school
Bataan 1st District Representative Geraldine Roman on Thursday alerted parents and teachers for children who are victims of bullying.
In sharing a news report titled, “130 million kids worldwide experience bullying,” Roman said on her Facebook account, “Let us ensure that their rights are protected whether at home or in school.”
“Ang Kabataan ay ang pag-asa ng ating bayan,” the politiko said.
According to her, signs that parents and teachers can watch out for among children who are being bullied include “refusal to go to school, lower scores and low self-esteem.”
She also shared that according to studies, “bullies are usually exposed to, or are themselves, victims of domestic violence.”
The news article that Roman shared cites a report of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) claiming that around 130 million, or one in three children worldwide, experience some form of bullying, and that the form of violence has direct, long-lasting impacts on children’s health, school performance and overall well-being.
