Due to advancement in technology, we can easily interact with each other without any need of face-to-face interactions. However, a new study by the researchers reveals that about 1 in 5 adolescent children experience some form of online bullying, which can have serious effects on their mental health and behavior. It was also found that family meals could help protect kids and teens from these harmful effects.
According to a study from the Institute of Health and Social Policy at McGill University in Montreal, 20% of adolescents going online are being bullied regularly. The study was published in JAMA Pediatrics on September 1, 2014.
