The Issues with Bullying - Bullying; when a person is exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more other persons, and he or she has difficulty defending him or herself (OWLEUS, Paragraph 1). This topic is one that’s received extremes on both sides of its awareness, with some people thinking immediate harsh action needs to be taken, while others claim it’s just a kid game. Bullying is in no way a fun game that kids play among themselves; it is a very serious form of abuse that can lead children to skip school, drink alcohol, smoke, dropout, lead violent futures, and vandalize properties (HRSA, Page 3)....   [tags: education, abuse]

Genetic and Environmental Influences on Victims, Bullies and Bully-Victims in Childhood - Conceptual Framework Many people have different views on what they think bullying might be. It is often interpreted in different ways by different people.
