Unfortunately we have people will bully others in order to gain attention or get their point across. If we stand by and allow these things to happen then we're just as guilty. We must take a stand. Bullying is so harmful. Way too many youth and adults have lost their lives due to bullying. It's one day when people stand by and watch others being bullied but when they partake in it they're placing themselves in a bad position. If no one takes a stand, Tanikka Paulk will, (NO Bullying on my Watch).

It's sick to watch public figures, such as presidential candidates, bullying and being cheered on to do it. It gives other people permission to get in on the act. How can we teach children not to bully when Trump and others are so blatant about it?

You're absolutely right. Political figures aren't setting a good example by bullying. It's wrong but it's been going on for a very long time.

Bullying has been going on for a long time. It won't stop completely but we can make some changes when it comes to bullying.

Before the internet, kids were bullied but they could be free of the bullying when they arrived home from school or from playing outside. Kids cannot escape bullying at any time due to cyberbullying. Schools try to stop the bullying, but that is not enough. All we can do as citizens is to try to put a stop to it when we become aware of or witness bullying.

Cyber bulling is a problematic. It's hard to control. It's unfortunate that it continues to occur and so many youth have taken their lives because of it.

Bullying is bad and potentially very destructive. Unfortunately, we have candidates running to become the next President that are acting like bullies. Not good role models.

Bullying takes place in politics. It even takes place in the church. Awful.

bullying was going on when I was a kid back in the day BEFORE internet came along but it has gotten MUCH worse now with the internet cause they're allowed to have internet it's a shame this is going on, on & off line & the results it brings with it too. but there are a lot of people that are scared to interfere with bullying cause you never KNOW what the person may have as a weapon & could go all wrong BUT you are right about trying to get a handle on this we've lost a lot of kids this way.

I never forget the few times I risked my life. I was walking with my young child to register her to middle school. I saw a gang of kids beating a young girl. She was leaned up against the window of an insurance office and the adults were in the window just looking out. I went over there and got those kids off that young girl and had to walk the other direction to get her home. I missed registering my kid that day. another time I saw a man whooping a woman on the street. I cussed him like a dog and told him he had better take his hands off her or I would call the cops. The poor woman was walking and crying and I kept an eye out to make sure she was able to keep walking. There were far more times I had to step up and could have been hurt and did not care.

I'm sure the girl was relieved that you came by to rescue her. That's sad. They usually do the bullying in groups.

internet bullying is the worst, if not for pictures humiliating you, it would be their comments or videos.

I knew a case of bulling and who it suffered is a lovely person, I can't understand why the people do it. Also never there are reasons for this.

That's sad. People will do things like, especially if they view someone as different, or weak. They should know better.
