As we begin National Bully Prevention Month, I feel it would be pertinent to put some thoughts on paper that would bring to light an important aspect of the bullying issue that is not usually addressed. We will see everyone from Dr. Phil to Anderson Cooper do specials on bullying in the next few weeks. Most of the media coverage will discuss victims and the need to protect these individuals from the torment of bullies. The solutions always range from counseling programs for victims to jail time for bullies. You will even hear the unenlightened say victims need to “suck it up” and stand up to bullies and that that would stop the bullying behaviors.
