Doctor Duane Alexander Once Said...
“Being bullied is not just an unpleasant rite of passage through childhood. It’s a public health problem that merits attention. People who were bullied as children are more likely to suffer from depression and low self esteem, well into adulthood, and the bullies themselves are more likely to engage in criminal behavior later in life.”

Bullying is when someone takes an unfair advantage over someone else to feel powerful. Bullying is using physical abuse, name-calling, put-downs, threats, stealing, or isolation to get what you want. Bullying is repetitive and almost always intentional.
