Bullying is not a new problem. It has long been a technique used by adults to control people and by teenagers to bully other children. Any adult who has ever had to deal with an annoying neighbor; unfriendly and condescending boss; controlling or abusive significant other; or someone else in power by aggressive means is dealing with a bully.
Fortunately, adults sometimes escape these situations by moving to another address, quitting their job, or divorcing their spouse. However, children are not usually so lucky. Children are usually tied to one place with no ability to change schools or districts.
Despite being able to leave an unhealthy physical environment, social media has made it possible for bullies to reach their victims at any time and place. Therefore, it is the responsibility of parents, guardians, and other adults in children’s lives to address these issues and teach children the life skills they need to deal with bullying now and in the future.
