Recently in the Huff Post (http://www.huffingtonpost.com) Parents section, Richard Weissbourd and Stephanie M. Jones reported on Lady Gaga’s interest and efforts to Eliminate Bullying Forever.
There has always been bullying. It was tolerated in the distant past, I suspect, due to parents focus not understanding how to deal with children, or to teach better social skills. In those years past, some kids outgrew bullying others did not. This is evident in today’s tolerance of bullying. Those is power tend to bully those not in power; this includes children and adults.

I must say that I do not know much about the prevention of bullying. I do understand that bullying left unchecked will grow mean spirited adults and release them into a world already saturated with power hungry sadistic people. Twisted.
Today is a good day as any to discover more about our shared responsibility to reject separatism and view ‘the children’ as part of our larger village. All children everywhere deserve to grow and develop in an oppression free environment.
