I tweak it a little, anyone can give any insight/inputs?
There is a significant social problem amongst teenagers. For many years, concerns about bullying and its connection to school violence and depression have brought upon a nationwide attention. However, nothing is being done because people are under the assertion that bullying is just a normal part of growing up. Bullying is simply defined as a type of aggressive behavior that involves intent to cause harm, occur repeatedly, and involves a power imbalance (Olweus, 1999). It can include psychological, physical (involving kicking and punching), verbal (name calling/teasing) or cyber abuse (internet bully). In my discussion, I'll briefly talk about what influence bullying behaviors, what are some long-term effects of being bullied and what are some possible routes for change?
