How to Stop Bullying?

We can prevent all types of bullying if teens just go to their teachers or parents, and tell them about how they are being bullied.

Policies prevent bullying from all major types of bullying, including verbal, social, physical, intimidation, and cyber bullying. These policies can also stop racism, religious, homophobic bullying, along with bullying of people with disabilities. If we accomplish this then bullying will cease to exist in this world.
