 Article 1“Consequences of Bullying Behavior”

Throughout the chapter “ Consequences of bullying behavior” in the book “Preventing Bullying Through Science, Policy, and Practice.” bullying has become a behavior among “school aged children and adolescents, bullying comes in all different forms such as an “ individual who bullies, the individual who is bullied and bullies others, and the bystander present during the bullying event.” The chapter expresses the physical health consequences, somatic symptoms, stress, the consequences of bullying on the brain function, social pain, and much more. This is relevant information because there is always going to be bullying. Bullying comes from one’s household, no one is perfect we do not this in a utopian society where everything we do has to follow a routine and everyone acts the same we are always going to have some bad apples that unfortunately act and think the way they do and that does affect the child where it’s something they learn from the parent or use bullying as a way to let out their frustration they would like to show their parents but can not.


Article 2 “How Does Bullying Affect the Bully?”

Throughout the  article “How Does Bullying Affect the Bully?” By Lorna Blumen in Bullying Prevention Tips, Raising Emotionally Healthy Kids, School Bullying, expressed the opposing side of bullying which is not the victims but the bully. The article includes research published in JAMA Psychiatry that show the numerous psychiatric issues that include depression, anxiety, panic disorder, suicidal thought behaviors and agoraphobia a bully could obtain in their lifetime. When one thinks about bullying we think about the one who is being bullied and of course we should focus on the victim but shouldn’t ignore how they bully might be affected by their own actions. This becomes relevant because the way a child is raised can affect who they become later on in life.


Article 3 “The long-term effects of being bullied or a bully in adolescence on externalizing and internalizing mental health problems in adulthood”

Throughout the article “The long-term effects of being bullied or a bully in adolescence on externalizing and internalizing mental health problems in adulthood” in the book “child and adolescent psychiatry and mental health” this chapter shows the effect of being bullied and being the bully and the mental toll it leaves behind for each side of the story meaning the victim of bullying and the bully. It is very important to know the emotional and physical toll that bullying and being a bully leaves on a person because most if not all of these negative tolls greatly impact one’s life

“Parents and Children in Second World War Germany: An Inter-generational Perspective on Wartime Separation”. This article explains how the relationship between parents and their children was affected by World War II. as after their parents had to leave they still continued to play an important role in their children’s lives. As parents struggled in the war to be able to return to their homes. This article is important since it suggests how the family relationship between parents and children was affected by the Second World War, supporting the fact that, for example, older children had to take actions thinking about the future with their parents.

“Childhood temporary separation: long-term effects of the British evacuation of children during World War 2 on older adults’ attachment styles”. This article suggests the long-term effects on children of the separation from their parents by the Second World War, how this affected their behavior as adults, to the point of creating emotional dependence in a small group of women. This is important in my research because it suggests that the separation of children and their parents can create a series of behaviors and habits for the rest of their lives and cause irreversible damage in the lives of children.

“Depressive Symptoms in Adults Separated from Their Parents as Children: A Natural Experiment during World War II.” This article explains the symptoms of depression suffered by some children who were separated from their parents during the Second World War. This article was based on a natural experiment done during the Second World War. This article is important for my analysis because it deals with the issue of depression suffered by some people who were separated from their parents, creating trauma in their lives and causing depression.

Article #1: “Class Act : An International Legal Perspective on Class Discrimination

This text is largely about social class discrimination and inequality as a global issue, tying in to my research paper of the movie, Parasite. In one chapter of the text, titled “Class Act in Class Discrimination”, it further goes in depth about the word “discrimination” and the different types of it. It also describes how discrimination often begins, whether it be through the differences between a group of people, like race or wealth, or how it is something adopted from their surrounding. In the case of the paper, the idea of class discrimination will be focused on how it is adopted from the surrounding of the two families in Parasite, the Kim family being poor and the Park family being rich, so there is a major difference in how these two families were raised and how they view each other.

Article #2: “Influencing the World Versus Adjusting to Constraints: Social Class Moderates Responses to Discrimination

This article is about the social class differences, such as economical, physical, and mental health differences. It also describes how even if one has wealth, there is still the limitation of race that comes in effect. One of the things that really stood out in this article is the how the difference in social class emphasize the access of material, as well as what constitutes as a “good” action/choice to go about. This connects to my research paper because in the film (again the economic difference is a big role in it) the Kim family is barely scraping by, doing whatever it takes to get food on the table and to maintain a roof over there head, so the parents must take whatever “good” choice they can, among them being to work for the Park family.

Article #3: “Sources of Suffering : Fear, Greed, Guilt, Deception, Betrayal, and Revenge

This book goes in depth about the various types of suffering, as said in its title. It describes about how suffering in and of itself is something that we cannot avoid in life (pretty dark I know), and it proceeds to do so by splitting into two parts, “Suffering Tolerated” and “Suffering Inflicted”. In “Suffering Tolerated”, the three chapters there are about fear, greed and guilt, while in “Suffering Inflicted”, it talks about deception, betrayal, and revenge. What I’m focused on in this is the greed part, as in the movie, the Kim family slowly becomes consumed by an air of greed, as they continue to work for the Park family and “leech” off of their wealth.

“ ‘I Can’t Breathe’: The Suffocating Nature of Racism ”

In the section “The Invisibility of Racism,” it talks about how some white people believe that racism no longer exists in their eyes. Instead racism for white people id more of an illusion or invisible.The reasoning they gave for this was because a person might not realize what racism is and what isn’t racism until they actually get to experience it. This section also talks about white privilege and how white people believe that they’re not privileged and everyone is the same in a sense. This connects to the song’s analysis by it supports the part of the song when she hints that sometimes white people don’t see racism and how racism still exists. 



“Policing and Racial (In)Justice in the Media: Newspaper Portrayals of the “Black Lives Matter” Movement”

The section “Social Protest and the Media” talks about how media outlets only show specific, as in the negative parts of the Black Lives Matter movement and protests. This section talks about how also, since the media outlets only show the bad parts of the protest, some viewers are more critical of the protesters and less compassionate on why they seem to be doing what they’re doing. With what they see on media, the viewers become less likely to identify with them as well. This connects to the analysis of the song by it supports when she talks about the media and fake news.



“Police brutality must stop”

This article talks about how there’s distrust with the law enforcement. It mentions how black and brown individuals and their communities are the only ones really suffering at the hands of police brutality and racism. This article also talks about how the United States has a history of systemically disadvantaging certain racial groups. The article as well includes a way on how to confront this systemic issue in our society. This connects to the song’s lyrics by it supports her issue of what’s happening with police brutality and minorities.
