During their lifetimes, it is believed that a shocking 77 percent of children are bullied either verbally, physical, or emotionally. That is a lot of suffering that children go through. And it seems that bullying is vastly under reported. According to a study from the National Bullying Prevention Center, 64 percent of children who were bullied never reported it.
But there is hope. In the same study, it was found that when a peer stands up to a bully in defense of a victim, the bullying situation stops 57 percent of the time. The most common reason people are bullied is because of looks, body shape, and race.
