The Two Faces of Gossip Among
Children
By Miriam Galindo
Introduction


Dr. Miriam Galindo, a licensed psychologist working
principally with children and families, operates a
private practice serving patients in and around
Irvine, California. According to modern studies, both
verbal and physical bullying results in serious
disruption to a child's social life, which in turn
impacts mental health. One study carried out in the
mid-2000s demonstrates that children who
experience social rejection exhibit a higher risk of
withdrawing from academic activities, causing their
grades to suffer.
About Gossip and Children


Gossip also plays a major role in a child's social wellbeing. When gossip singles out a child
negatively, the individual can develop a poor-selfconcept, as shown in one study. Further research
links social victimization to serious issues like anxiety
and depression. Interestingly, gossip appears to
have "two faces." One face manifests in a socially
destructive way among children, but the other face
foments strong and healthy relationships, through
which children vent without necessarily harming their
peers.
Conclusion


California parents of children who have experienced
bullying may wish to contact an experienced
psychologist. For more information about Dr. Miriam
Galindo and her practice, please visit
