Seven on your side has done a number of editorials and series on the problem of bullying in our school systems. Not surprisingly we continue to get reports from all over our viewing area about instances of bullying.
One student may bully a number of others, or it maybe a group picking on just one person…it comes in different forms. Bullying has also been around since Cain and Abel. Recent studies have shown that…contrary to the old conventional wisdom that says all bullies are insecure cowards…Those who seek to dominate others are often quite confident in their power to do so.
Being the victim of a bully can make a person's life miserable and can leave scars that last a lifetime. now there is even on-line bullying. We've seen young people go so far as to take their own lives because of things said about them over the internet. It is cruel and despicable behavior.
