Edison Students Talk On Bullying

A variety of sources note that children of all ages can suffer emotional problems due to bullying and that nearly three-fourths of all young people have been or are currently being bullied. Cyberbullying is also on the rise as nearly half of all teens are affected. Persistent bullying in teens can lead to or worsen feelings of isolation, rejection, exclusion, and despair, as well as depression and anxiety, which can contribute to suicidal behavior. So what can you, as adults, do to protect your children and grandchildren?

On Thursday, December 14 at 6 p.m., four Edison State Community College Darke County Campus communications students will be at the Greenville Public Library to address the issue of bullying. Their goal is to provide adults with information that could help the young people in their lives. They are Kaitlin Howard, Brigette Filbrun, Elizabeth Williams, and Madison Little.

For a number of years, the Edison Fundamentals of Communication students have been educating young people on bullying, drug abuse, and literacy. They have visited nearly every school district in Darke County in order to talk about the consequences of risky or abusive behavior. This fall, nine Edison teams will be at Greenville’s K-8 campus, the Ansonia and Mississinawa Valley campuses, and the Greenville Library.
