Yes, I have been bullied by someone when I was a young child. It made me feel hated and useless, and I am sorry to say that it, in turn, caused me to bully some children smaller than myself in order to try to gain back my feelings of worth.
Bullying occurs in every school and many work places across the nation. Aggressive put-downs and words that demean another person are both forms of bullying, and this is becoming a very large problem, especially in schools. The children in these situations very rarely feel that there is anything that they can do to change it, since going to teachers very rarely gets a result and defending themselves gets them expelled or suspended along with the bully. When there is no solution available, they just duck their head and deal with it.
