My husband of 5 years has cheated on me. I'm heartbroken. Can I fix our marriage?? Is there hope for us?? Will things get better? Please help
Am I over reacting? Am I the one in the wrong no him
Ok I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years now and he denied cheating on me but everything points to the opposite he's gone to spend the night with his baby moma and her kids in a hotel he rated me put to her when I called the cops on her for her vandalizing my car he would defend her when I would bring thing up about her and he has a video of her playing with her self am I wrong for being mad?
We both have insecurities and trust issues due to past relationships... So, there's the back and forth accusations, yelling, name calling, etc. We are both extremely jealous and have no communication skills. We love each other but sometimes Love isn't enough to make someone understand that you aren't going to hurt them. How can we help each other overcome these issues?

You may remember bullying from your own teen years—name-calling, shoving on the playground, intimidation, or threats. Unfortunately, bullying is just as rampant as ever, and it’s likely that our teens have it even worse than we did.
With the prevalence of technology and social media in the lives of our children, the ways that bullies are capable of manipulating and damaging their victims have increased tenfold. Some even say that bullying has escalated to all-new heights never seen before.
But just how common is teen bullying these days, and what are the consequences? What should we do for our children if we suspect that something is amiss?
Checking the numbers.
While the frequency of bullying varies widely between studies (due to the particular populations and circumstances within each surveyed group), the average rate across 80 of these studies was 35% for traditional bullying and 15% for cyberbullying.
In other words, roughly one in every three teens between the ages of 12 and 18 will either be bullied or will bully others.
Long-term effects of bullying.
We’d like to believe that the negative effects of bullying will only persist as long as the bullying itself, but that is far from the case. Sadly, bullying may result in long-term struggles with:
- Chronic depression;
- Post-traumatic stress disorder;
- Anxiety disorders;
- Relationship development;
- Self-harm behaviors, suicidal ideation, and teen suicide;
- Substance abuse;
- Low self-esteem;
- Decreased occupational opportunities.
Teen bullying may drastically change an adolescent’s views on life and on their own identity. These perspectives may result in lasting feelings of hopelessness or a decreased ability to foster trusting relationships with others.
In particular, emotional and psychological bullying is capable of causing even longer-lasting damage than physical bullying, according to Dr. Mark Dombeck of the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress (AAETS).
Whether or not we directly see the results of bullying manifest in the lives and behavior of our children, it is our responsibility as parents to do what we can to help. Luckily, research has demonstrated that open communication between parents and their children can help to prevent bullying before it begins or worsens.
If you are the parent of a teen whom you suspect may be a victim of bullying at school or online, we highly recommend that you seek out a professional to work with your teen.
