National Bullying Prevention Month October 1-31 2014

In October 2014 National Bullying Prevention Month is celebrated. Traditionally held the first week in October, the event was expanded in 2010 to include activities, education, and awareness building for the entire month. National Bullying Prevention Month is recognized in communities across the United States, with hundreds of schools and organizations signing on as partners.

Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively impose domination over others. The behavior is often repeated and habitual. One essential prerequisite is the perception, by the bully or by others, of an imbalance of social or physical power.

Bullying ranges from simple one-on-one bullying to more complex bullying in which the bully may have one or more lieutenants who may seem to be willing to assist the primary bully in his or her bullying activities. Bullying in school and the workplace is also referred to as peer abuse. (With material from: Wikipedia)

    This hits me so close to home. I’m really glad you made this post. It’s so severe & swept under the rug most of the time.
