Bullies & social status

0

A study has found that kids who bully others have reasonably high social status. Aggression is seen as a way of getting ahead by the students who took part in the study. The interesting thing was that students who were right at the top of the pile did not bully anyone, possibly because they did not feel the need.

Two-thirds of the students who took part in the poll said they were not mean to anyone. If someone is being bullied, it can have a very serious effect on their studies or on their work behaviour. One should learn to be assertive, as most bullies don't like too much resistance. But if the situation gets out of hand, teachers, parents, or bosses should be notified.
