Bullying in Schools

Just recently I read about the little girl in Massachusetts, who was bullied so much that she eventually committed suicide. I was awfully upset to hear this thing, arent these children ashamed that they would hurt someone out of jealousy, enough for them to hurt themselves. I wonder how I would feel if that was my child who committed suicide or even if it were my child doing the bullying. I wonder how anyone would feel to find out it was there child, so what would you feel.

A good discussion topic, my friend ... that violence can happen anywhere, anytime and by anyone. I am also concerned about the act of violence perpetrated by a child to his friends, especially if it was done in the school environment ... I think this should be the concern and responsibility of teachers to supervise and educate mental and behavioral their students

This is a shocking story that really upset me as well. Unfortunately a local thirteen year old boy was bullied by three school mates. They punched and kicked him and they even tried to strangle him. Fortunately he was saved by some neighbours who intervened and stopped this barbaric act. He had to spend a night in hospital for observation.
