The article features the most important facts and figures concerning the epidemic of bullying, workplace bullying, cyber bullying and school bullying in USA and UK as well as references to tragic incidents of bullying and cyber bullying gone wrong.
Some of the astounding numbers and facts include the following: Research shows that half of all children are bullied at some time during their school years. More than 10% are bullied regularly - one out of every ten children is subject to chronic harassment.
It also states that only 1 in 10 victims of cyber bullying tell a parent. Fewer than 1 in 5 cyber-bullying incidents are reported to the police, because it is believed that cyber-bullying is less threatening or grave then regular bullying.
According to the article, several factors increase the risk of a child being bullied, including parental over-control, illness or disability, passivity, social phobia, agoraphobia, and higher levels and expression of general anxiety.
Macartan Mulligan, Co-Founder of NoBullying.com, said, "Bullying is no longer children based; employees, teachers, parents and people from all ages and paths of life are being bullied on daily basis. This needs to stop with awareness and education and a firm collective stand."
He added that parents and teachers should make a point to educate the younger generations about the sad outcome of bullying online and off line. According to Mulligan, it is quite imperative to press for more firm laws condemning all acts of bullying, cyber bullying and harassment.
