Kids these days are now bringing weapons to school, threatening the lives of every student.
Another form of bullying is verbal bullying. This is where students hurt others by saying harmful things to them and making fun of them for any number of reasons. This is a form of bullying that does not seem that serious, but it is. Words can hurt just as much as anything someone could do to you physically. The names that people are being called now are very harsh and have driven people to extreme actions, such a suicide or school shootings. Over 70% of people in todays schools experience verbal bullying in some way shape or form. Verbal bullying may be taken more lightly than other forms, but it is just as serious and a lot more common.
The most recent form of bullying is cyber-bullying. Cyber-bulllying is a new form of bullying in which the victims are bullies through the internet or through any form of technology, including, but not limited to: text-messaging, through the phone and/or E-mail. Cyber-bullying is taking the world by storm and is just as serious as any other kind of bullying.
Bullying. The very word inspires pictures of anger and sadness. There is no such thing as good bully. Bullies are people too, however, and probably do so because of personal reasons, such as abuse at home. Sometimes you have to be the bigger person and try to befriend the bully and help them. You will find that most of the time that all a bully really seeks is attention and approval.
