BULLYING IN YOUTH
Effects one third of all school children!
Do students who are bullied or teased often deserve it?
The victims of bullies are not always at fault. Bullies like to pick on other children to make them feel better about themselves and get over the problem they have in there own life. Bullies can come from a variety of families. For example, a harsh stressful home environment can lead to children becoming bullies. This is because the child is taking his or her anger out on another person.
- No one deserves to have there face beat in or be emotionally torn down!
