    I think it is so much worse now. When I was a kid, I heard name calling (not fun) and threats of “butt kicking” but it seemed like that was the most of it. Now, it’s so much meaner and full of spite, as if the bully child will do whatever it takes to break the victim’s spirit. And THAT… a broken spirit, is what I think is the biggest hurt of all.

  2. To me it seems like the first step is to break the child’s spirit, and then make them soo depressed that they kill themselves.
    And it doesn[t have to make any sense for who is picked on.
    I was bullied in 9. It was only on the bus, and for me it wasn’t fun to endure, but it was endurable. Didn’t see the bully after 9th grade cause she was three years ahead of me. Not the summer after my 12th grade, but the summer after that, so I was 19 and she was 22 or 23, I walked into the store she worked in, I didn’t know she worked there, and she tried to bully me again! I couldn’t believe it. We were both supposed to be adults!!!!! I laughed at it because it was so ridiculous and she wasn’t a threat anymore, but really?
