In a national study of nearly 2,500 Norwegian boys and girls ages 12 to 15 published in the November issue of European Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, researchers found a substantial statistical correlation between both victims and aggressors of bullying and parental divorce.
Given that both victims and aggressors of bullying, relative to their noninvolved peers, were also found to experience more psychological problems, the parental-divorce link should not be surprising.
The distress of parental breakup, the Norwegian researchers claim, leaves adolescents emotionally vulnerable and therefore easy targets for bullies among their peers.
At the same time, parental divorce incubates bullying by leaving adolescents, according to study, with “less monitoring, often fewer adults to confide in, and sometimes increased aggression because of feelings of loss.”
From my other blog, The UCC’s lead marketing tool: Encouraging sin.
It is so repulsive to see their blasphemy in claiming to speak for God in contradiction to his revealed word. And to make their tagline into a gay pride flag is even worse.
. . .
Is it any surprise that the UCC keeps shrinking? They work so hard to conform to the world, but the world just chalks that up as a victory and ignores them. Why join a group that just tells you what you already “know?”
Planned Parenthood of IL tries to scrub claim that mandatory child sex abuse reporting would overtax the system – It is bad enough that they tried to fight this reporting. But consider their underlying claim: They concede that there is a huge amount of child sex abuse that needs to be reported! This is a vile organization that should not receive taxpayer funding.
So George Soros has funded NPR for years. Shocking, eh? Reminds me of how Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis lied about saying that he didn’t know Soros had given his group hundreds of thousands of dollars.
One of the ways Darwin is defended:
… many members of the militant atheist set will often write “canned” reviews of a book with either minimal reading or no reading whatsoever. Most actual users of Amazon will give such “reviews” a negative vote. However, the goal of these writers is not so much to provide their particular slant on the book as it is to try to crowd out serious or thoughtful reviews on a topic they dislike. To further this end, they post a link to their reviews on various “science” (read materialist) and atheist websites asking for what Amazon calls “campaign” votes. If one of these negative reviews gets enough votes, it is then featured on the Amazon page as “Spotlight” review. To hold all the spotlight review positions effectively crowds out the thoughtful reviews (which then appear in abbreviated form on the side margin) and the militant set achieves their goal.
How charming. And dishonest. I suppose they haven’t evolved to seeing how honesty benefits humanity yet.
The shame is unbearable – a warning to those considering abortion, and hope for those who have had them. Despite the lies of the pro-legalized abortionists, post-abortion trauma is real. There is hope and healing available in Jesus.
Prayers for the persecuted – Christian persecution continues around the world.
