Bullying is a real problem in our schools. Bullying has a profound impact
on the lives of those who are the victims. This impact goes beyond the
confines of the school yard. The impact goes beyond a child's graduation
from High School. The impact is everlasting. While depression, anxiety,
stress and fear are the immediate responses to bullying, all too often
this harassment leads to suicide or murder in the form of "self defense".
Often times, the bully is not the sole perpetrator in these "attacks".
The schools and parents who turn a blind eye to the transgressions or
simply believe that bullying is simply kids being kids are equally culpable
in these "attacks". Bullying has gone beyond the school ground
to include cyber bullying. Victims cannot escape the bullying anymore
simply by leaving the school yard. If your child is the victim of bullying,
take a stand and hold the bully and those who allow him/her to exist accountable.
