Bullying can cause anxiety in some children. The term anxiety can be explained as suppressing feelings when faced with situations that are filled with stress or the inability to handle stressful situations in an effective or appropriate manner. Anxiety can be identified as encompassing a broad span of emotions that can be internalized or expressed outwardly; it may be experienced due to stressful or emotionally- driven situations. Previous neuroscience studies help to explain how the link between fear and learning is manifested and how long periods of anxiety in children can cause learning problems and reading difficulties. Mindfulness Education can help alleviate stressful situations and reduce anxiety due to bullying.

Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) are vital for academic success. Bullying victims are vulnerable to experiencing internalizing behaviors such as depression and anxiety and are at greater risk of engaging in self-harm, suicidal ideology, and negative thinking. This behavior may manifest into declined academic learning. Researchers have determined there is empirical evidence that when individuals did daily mindfulness meditation, a profound behavioral change manifests in panic and anxiety disorder patients, as they are able to maintain and increase their ability to remain calm and concentrate. Mindfulness Education (ME) is essential for helping children cope with bullying as well as mental health related illnesses, learning disabilities, and academic performance.
Bullying can have terrible longlasting trauma including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) for victims and their families. The teaching of mindfulness-based skills to children and their families allows a greater ability to keep focused attention and control emotions. Through this process, children are further capable of developmentally maintaining added positive results in enhancing family relationships.
