Some say that bullying is an age old problem. It's been going on as long as people have existed and getting bullied is just a part of growing up. It will make the kids tougher.
That's a load of crap.
In the "old days," when you walked uphill both ways to school, bullying was done in the hallways of school or on the school bus. All a kid had to do to escape was just to run like Forest Gump.
But times, they are a changin'.
