5 Myths about Bullying from the Washington Post


From schoolyards to workplaces and now in cyberspace, it seems that bullies are everywhere. New efforts to stop them and to help victims cope - such as the It Gets Better campaign - are gaining attention and popularity, but are they the best ways to protect kids and others from the worst forms of bullying?

1: Most bullying happens online
2: Bullies are bullies and victims are victims
3: Bullying ends when we grow up
4: Bullying is the major cause of suicides
5: We can end bullying. Can we? The debate rages on, but we still always try!!
