Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior toward another person that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. It includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose. Also, in our age of modern technology, it also includes cyberbullying.
Sadly, children can be the victims of bullies, the ones doing the bullying, or witnesses of this hurtful behavior. I personally know what it’s like to be bullied because as a young child, I was a victim.
A very dear friend of mine, children’s author Annette Bentley Smith, has just recently released her anti-bullying book. Although it is a children’s book, it is also geared toward families, which is so important because children who are victims of this horrific behavior need all the support they can get but especially from their families.
