Bullying, What is it?

Bullying is not an act to take lightly. Many communities think that it is something that doesn't happen in their towns. This is one of the biggest problems with bullying; not recognizing it only makes it worse. It is important for people to realize that it is a problem and we all need to work together to remove it from the hallways of our schools.

There are many different types of bullying, making it difficult to pinpoint exact incidences of bullying and teach kids to identify occurrences accurately. Bullying can happen anytime, anywhere and does frequently happen in schools and online.

A sampling of resources have been provided that may help all of us to recognize bullying and what to do once we have.
