Whenever children are singled out because of a shared characteristic — such as race, sexual orientation, or religion — or a perceived shared characteristic, the issue not only affects that individual but the entire community.
Let's Put An End to Bullying
Bullying Prevention programs in schools have proven to significantly reduce bullying. Working together, we can put an end to bullying. Speakers provide a powerful bully prevention education that you can bring back to your school to teach students about bullying, how to avoid being the target of a bully, and how to stand up for bullying victims.

This is what most of us think of when we hear the word 'bullying'. All those images in our heads of fights on the playground or scuffles in the hall between classes fall under this category. It includes: hitting, pushing, tripping, slapping, stealing or destroying possessions, and sexual harassment or assault.
Verbal bullying can be just as damaging as physical bullying. Females primarily engage in this form of bullying, though males may also use it in an attempt to dominate their victim. Kinds of verbal bullying include name calling, insults, gossip, teasing, taunting, intimidation, and sexist or racist remarks.
Sometimes called indirect or covert bullying, this form can be more difficult to detect. It can go on behind the victim's back or can take the form of public humiliation. It includes: spreading rumors, non-inclusion, negative gestures, jokes or pranks, embarrassment or humiliation, and damaging someone's social reputation. This form can be the most emotionally damaging to its victims. They experience depression and anxiety. The psychological effects of social bullying often stick around even into adulthood.
This relatively new form of bullying has only recently begun to receive attention. It is a form of social bullying specifically through technology. Cyberbullies attack victims through text messages, email, websites, chat rooms, and social media sites. It reaches the victim wherever they are, and they often feel that they cannot escape.
15% of all school absences are directly related to fears of being bullied.
20% of students report having been victims of physical bullying.
6 out of 10 teens report witnessing bullying at least once a day.
282,000 students are reportedly attacked in high school each month.
60% of middle school students say they have been bullied, while only 16% of staff believe that students are bullied.
2/3 of students who are targets of bullying become bullies.
