Bullying has gained attention in the national media during recent years. There are still parents and teachers who refuse to take this issue as seriously as they should. Bullying is a real issue in our schools.
What is bullying?
Bullying is when someone keeps doing or saying things to have power over another person. These are just a few examples: name calling, saying or writing negative things about someone, threatening / intimidation, making someone feel uncomfortable or scared, taking or damaging things that belong to others, and physical harm.
The issue of bullying was once thought of as a male “bad-boy” issue that children would out grow. This is not the case. In fact, we find more and more females involved in bullying due to the rise of a “mean-girls” mentality.
