Two in three girls say they are being bullied – survey

first_imgNZ Herald 9 December 2015More than half of teenagers say they are being bullied, with girls significantly more likely to report some form of cruelty.A British Government survey of more than 120,000 15-year-olds in England found that 63 per cent of girls and 48 per cent of boys said they had been bullied in the past couple of months.Girls were twice as likely as boys to say they had been victims of online bullying.They were also more likely to say they had been the subject of sexual jokes, false rumours or the use of “inappropriate” pictures without permission.An NSPCC spokesman said: “The impact of bullying on young people is devastating and can last a lifetime. Cyber-bullying can be especially torturous as it’s not possible to escape; a child can be bullied in their own home, often by anonymous predators, who hide behind the internet. Online bullying is abuse and we must not allow it to become a standard part of young people’s lives.Keep up with family issues in NZ.

We must be alert to the issues young girls are facing today – there is no denying there is a growing pressure to look a certain way and they are struggling to cope.”Paul Niblett, Responsible Statistician from HSCIC said: “Today’s report shows that more than half of 15-year olds in England have experienced some form of bullying in the last couple of months, with girls being more likely to report this. Girls were also twice as likely as boys to report experiencing cyber-bullying.”“Forms of psychological bullying were more common than physical bullying or cyber-bullying. Just over a third (34 per cent) of 15-year olds reported that they had been called mean names, made fun of or were teased in a hurtful way in the last couple of months.”“Just under a third (30 per cent) reported they had experienced people telling lies or spreading false rumours about them and trying to make others dislike them.”While physical abuse was the least likely type of bullying to be reported, it was more common among boys than girls, he said, with 11 per cent of boys reporting being hit, kicked, pushed, shoved around, or locked indoors at least once, compared with 7 per cent of girls.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/health/news/article.cfm?c_id=204&objectid=11558440last_img read more

Special Birthday

first_imgToday is my granddaughter, Audrey’s, 9th birthday.  I am going to dedicate this blog to her and the other young athletes who have birthdays today.Audrey certainly likes her sports.  In the fall she plays soccer, and in the winter she is a point guard on her basketball team.  In the spring she turns her attention to fast-pitch softball.  Living in the state of Iowa, girls softball is still King.  If you are willing, most coaches will try you as a pitcher.  At this point, she is a pitcher.At this time of the year the softball season is winding down so she has turned her attention to golf.  Her entire family enjoys golf, so they will spend a lot of time together on the golf course.Happy Birthday, Audrey!last_img

Gotze quits Dortmund

first_imgRelatedPosts Reinier completes Dortmund loan switch Manchester United target Sancho says ‘happy’ at Dortmund Borussia Dortmund’s Sancho off to pre-season camp amid transfer speculation Mario Gotze has confirmed he is to leave Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season when his contract expires. The German has also announced the prolific Reza Fazeli from International Soccer Management as his new agent. While a number of clubs will now be on alert, the 27-year-old was recently tipped to join West Ham by Dortmund legend Rummingge, who believes the Hammers are an ideal next destination. Gotze – who iconically scored the winning goal at the 2014 World Cup after coming on as a substitute –  revealed the decision was one he has not made lightly. “First of all, I hope according to the circumstances that you and your loved ones are doing well in the present situation,” Gotze said. “Today I would like to announce that after intensive consideration, I have decided to make a change in the planning of my career. “I have consciously taken my time over this step. It is an important decision for my sporting future and I am very much looking forward to working with Reza Fazeli and his agency International Soccer Management (ISM), whose professional competence has absolutely convinced me. “What the sporting future will bring will only become apparent when a little normality has returned to the world. “Until then, please stay healthy and support society as much as you can.” While Gotze’s form of late has arguably been sub-par, his wealth of experience is undeniable. The German has won the World Cup, alongside five Bundesliga titles, four German Cup trophies and more. The midfielder has made 63 international appearances for Germany, also featuring in a combined 331 games during his spells with Bayern Munich and Dortmund. Rummenigge – who made over 300 appearances for Bayern and Dortmund – believes a move to a club like West Ham could be beneficial to Gotze. “I’m thinking [he could join] clubs like Everton or West Ham or some Italian middle-of-the-table club,” wrote Rummenigge in his Sportbuzzer column in March.Tags: Borussia DortmundInternational Soccer ManagementMario GotzeReza Fazelilast_img read more

Ferguson admits to season regrets

first_imgSir Alex Ferguson has admitted this will be a season tinged with regret for Manchester United, even if they go on to win the Premier League. Sir Alex added: “The biggest disappointment was failing to get past Chelsea in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. Normally if we fall behind we can find another gear and get back on track, but on this occasion we didn’t manage it. “That goes down as a great regret in my book, especially with such a great prize there for the taking with a semi-final against Manchester City beckoning. “Some might think that going out of the Champions League would have been my biggest regret, but there was a reason, one that was out of our control and has to be put down to experience.” Even if City win on Monday, United would still need to lose another four games, which seems unlikely given they have only dropped points on five occasions in their first 30 matches, a top flight record. Anything other than a City win could see United wrap the whole thing up within 10 days, completing a task they set themselves as the Blues were about to lift the trophy themselves last May. “What you learn about this club is that you have to try and win every competition,” Nani told MUTV. “The Premier League is the most important competition and what happened last year made us very focused on this one. “We have done a very good job to be in this position. It is difficult to forget the size of our lead but we know every game is difficult in the Premier League because every team has something to fight for. That is why we are so concentrated on the games. We will only relax when we know it is not possible for anyone to come back at us.” With a 15-point advantage over Monday’s Old Trafford visitors Manchester City and only eight games of the campaign remaining, it seems only a matter of time before United are crowned champions for a record 20th time. However, Monday’s FA Cup defeat at Chelsea and the Champions League exit to Real Madrid has robbed United of a multi-silverware haul. “How do we analyse this season – is it one of regret or celebration?” he told United Review. “For me it is something of the proverbial curate’s egg, part bad but with some great redeeming features.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
