Intergenerational Cultural Bullying (I-C Bullying)
Immigration often leads to cultural conflicts between generations. This causes a breakdown in traditional family structures and cultural conflicts, creating more stress for families. Ethnic Youth often face extreme pressures from their families and communities to hold onto their cultural values. Unfortunately they don’t realise that these unreasonable demands on young people can cause a lot of stress. Sometimes this has the same impact as bullying. We want to take a step towards bridging the gap between youth and parents and empower them as leaders for change within their communities. We want to support generations to join together and say no to I-C Bullying.
