As the dad with a 4th grade daughter, my ears are always open for signs of bullying because when it comes to bullying, girls have it worse than boys.
EurekAlert reports that Rutgers University researchers looked at data from the Centers for Disease Control and found teenage girls are more likely to consider, plan, or attempt suicide compared to boys, regardless of being bullied or not but that boys were more likely to actually die by suicide.

There is a noticeable difference in the kind of bullying boys and girls must endure.

Scientists note that bullying among boys is often physical, while among females it's often relational such as excluding people from groups or activities or spreading rumors, the marks of which are painful but invisible.

Researchers say school interventions for bullying need to do more to understand how  females are bullied and find ways to better address girls experiencing it.
