When we think about bullying- we maybe first think about physical violence. This is often boys bullying boys- like in Tom Brown’s Schooldays, Lord of the Flies or Scum. More often nowadays we include the alternate ways that girls tend to bully. This bullying is often more emotional. It comes to light more and more often, as cyber bullying, name calling, criticising and picking on the victim- often online on social media, but also in person. Frequently, and very sadly, these days we see reports of teenagers driven to grim suicide and attempted suicide; or having their lives thrown into turmoil in other ways- such as developing anorexia or bulimia, or other forms of self harm.
