School Nurses Document Health Effects of Bullying

Using school nursing logs as an objective behavioral indicator of children’s
health status, researchers found a “significant relationship between involvement
in aggressor–victim interactions and child health.” Study results were published
in Pediatrics. For related information, read this AJN
Reports
on reducing violent behavior in adolescents.

Turning the Curve on Bullying

Remembering Anna Packer

In exactly 10 days it will be 7 years ago that Anna Packer decided that this would be her last day on earth. Sometime around this very moment, between 4 and 6PM she decided that her life was not worth living anymore. She was tired of the ridicule, the teasing, and the name calling. She was tired of being followed home from school by her bullies. This year Anna would have been 21 on April 21st. Her mother always thought that this would have been a special day for her because she would have been 21 on the 21st. The thought still to this day still haunts her and the rest of her family.
