In a study done in 2008, it was discovered that violence experienced by children were actually started by their own peers. "Across three age ranges surveyed, the incidence of ridicule and teasing was reported to have been experienced by 50 percent among children in Grades 1 to 3; 67 percent among children in Grades 4 to 6; and 65 percent among children in high school."
In 2009, there was actually a National Training Program on Anti-Bullying, conducted by the Department of Education. Why not start your own anti-bullying movement in your school? Stop bullying and start a friendship with your classmates who have been bullied. Remember, the bullying starts and stops with you!
