Bullying

Bullying can be defined as a form of aggressive behavior manifested by the use of force or coercion to affect others, particularly when the behavior is ongoing and involves an imbalance of power (The target is smaller, younger in age, etc...) It is also against the law if one is discriminated against for race, sex, religion, or age.

Adults mainly think that bullying is a problem that all children must learn to deal with as they grow up. Bullying is not just a phase or something that we all have to go through, it is not "just messing around", and it is not something that kids eventually just grow out of. Bullying is a serious problem that causes long-lasting harm to all those involved.

In life fingers are not equal; this means we are all different from each other. Kids get teased because they are built differently than the “average” person or they get left out of a group of individuals because someone in that group doesn’t like the way they dress or is jealous of that person’s looks, abilities or possessions. The candid truth is we are all different but we are also all very similar, too. When we take the time to get to know each other we will see that our differences make us unique and interesting. According to the Statistics of bullying, children in the lower grades report being in twice as many fight s as those in the higher grades. Middle school is when bullying peaks.
