Rebecca Lee English 1411: Composition 2 Adam Marcotte October 7th 2013 How Does The Pain Of Being Bullied Affect Children Going Through School? It is said that being bullied throughout your school years may have a long lasting impression that could also follow into your adulthood. When I was about 3 years old my parents had found out from the doctors that I had Klipple Trenary Webber Syndrome. This syndrome is where your hands and feet are bigger than normal.

(2013) said that, "We cannot continue to dismiss bullying as a harmless, almost inevitable, part of growing up."

There are so many signs and symptoms of children getting bullied and I personally have experienced all of them. The child could come home with unexplainable injuries and even damaged articles of clothing and not want to tell the truth about what happened. This one I used a lot; finds excuses to avoid going to school, and is often sick or comes up with different excuses. After a while the child might lose interest in friends or participating in school activities or even any kind of activity. The victim could feel helpless, like they mean nothing to a certain person or people.
