Bullying "Awareness" ~ is it being taken too far?
I haven't been around for awhile (which I'm sure just broke your hearts, haha ;)), so I'm hoping this topic wasn't brought up recently...
There's been more awareness in recent years about bullying among children/teens, which can be a good thing, but do you think that in some respects it's being taken too far to include things that aren't true bullying?
Definition of bullying according to stopbullying.gov:
Bullying Definition | StopBullying.gov
Do you agree with the above definition of bullying and cyberbullying exactly as it's stated?
Do you think that the awareness of bullying and less tolerance by school officials is helping to cut down on it?
What is your experience with bullying and how does it compare to today's definition of bullying--is it the same, or different (not including cyber bullying, of course)?
Do you think it's possible kids these days are being taught to have more of a victim mentality, rather than learning how to be mentally strong?
