Say NO to bullying!

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.
