Too often lately, we hear horrible stories about kids who are constantly bullied, yet nothing is done to help them. Bullying is happening everywhere: online, in schools, in the workplace.
What can we do to stop this?
I say the first thing that needs to occur is education. It is VITAL that all students, employers, and employees are educated on bullying, how to recognize it, and what to do if it occurs. While schools are taking a tougher stand against bullies, it's the workplace that is becoming a bigger issue as well. Just because the bullying is between adults, does not mean that it is okay.
Bullying can affect a person's health, mental state, and day to day life. NO ONE should tolerate bullying, no matter what the age or situation.
While these links may not give all the answers on what can be done, I hope they give some insight as to the bullying problem that is continuously growing in our society.
Please, if you or someone you know is being bullied, REPORT IT! You are important and do not have take that kind of abuse from anyone. You matter!
