Bullying - a word that has become very familiar in the North American media lately. As a parent, the last thing you want for your child is for them to be the victim of bullying, and most especially, you do not want them to be the aggressor.

Somewhere along the way we have all been either the victims, witnesses or the perpetrators of bullying. Many have even suggested that this is a natural stage that we all must pass in childhood.

There is no need for a child to be the victim of bullying, especially now that such a bright light has been shown on some of its devastating effects.
