How many stories have you heard in the recent past about young people who have fallen victim to bullying? One story is one too many. Unfortunately, many of the stories end with the tragic loss of life as a direct result. According to the website, Stopbullying.gov, bullying is defined as “intentionally aggressive, usually repeated” verbal, social, or physical behavior aimed at a specific person or group of people.
Bullying happens in any setting and affects all age groups from school-aged children to adults. While bullying occurs in the work place, the most common settings are schools, school buses, playgrounds and with more frequency, cyber bullying.
