EUROPE OVERTAKES U.S. TO BECOME GLOBAL HUB FOR CHILD ABUSE WEBSITES, STUDY FINDS

Europe is now the global hub of websites hosting child pornography, after a 19 percent jump in content since last year, a new report has found.

The Netherlands has become the country with the most online sexual imagery of children in Europe. (For the purpose of the report, Europe includes Russia and Turkey.)

The IWF is a non-profit, responsible for finding and removing graphic sexual content from the internet.

Bullied kids suffer academically, too, study says

Bullying isn’t just about physical violence or emotional pain — it can impact kids’ educations, too.

Kids bullied their entire school career have declining test scores, a growing dislike of school and failing confidence in their abilities, say the authors of a study published Monday in the Journal of Educational Psychology.
Researchers tracked several hundred children in the United States from kindergarten through 12th grade, and found nearly a quarter experienced chronic bullying through their school years.
