Four Edison Darke County Communications students – Kaitlin Howard, Brigette Filbrun, Elizabeth Williams and
Madison Little – will be discussing the issue of Bullying at the Greenville Public Library on Dec. 14.
Edison State students to address bullying at the Library

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 affects nearly half of teens and is rapidly becoming more prevalent. These sources paint a grim picture on what seems to be a little recognized national problem.

Teens skip school due to bullying. Persistent bullying 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?

Edison State Community College Darke County Campus communications students will address this issue at the Greenville Public Library on Dec. 14 at 6 p.m. Their goal is to provide adults with information that could help the young people in their lives.

For a number of years, Edison Fundamentals of Communication students have been educating young people on bullying each fall, drug abuse each spring, and recently, literacy in the summer. 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.
