Teen suicide is so prevalent today.

I wouldn't same its more prevalent , more it gets more attention then it did 20 years ago. It used to be no body gave a damn, we were expected and demanded to so it up- life sucks, its a bitch then you die. Now everyone is so hype sensitive. In true cases of bullying it not right, in fairness though in this day and age hands are tired preventing the person being bullied to take a stand. 20+ years ago we were encouraged to stand up and defend ourselves if absolutely necessary. In more cases...

In true cases of bullying it not right, in fairness though in this day and age hands are tired preventing the person being bullied to take a stand. 20+ years ago we were encouraged to stand up and defend ourselves if absolutely necessary. In more cases both sides where given the exact same punishment at the social level then the parents disciplined their children in the private settings. Though a good portion of modern bullying is not real bullying, its hyped up spoil me rotten and KMA to me. Anyone refusing to KMA is a bully- boohoo wwwaaaaaaaaaaaa. Kids today know they can manipulate people and the ultimate way to manipulate those that care is make you life a barganing chip. Give me what I want or I kill myself! Tell me everything I do is right and encourage it no matter how wrong it is otherwise I kill myself. LOL even them "rules " are warped. In true cases of bully I can sympathize. Some of this stuff I can't feel sad though. There is a balance point but that balance point is off balance now. It actually disgusts me. No one gives a damn about folks like myself and others in the same boat. We could threaten Suicide and we have already been told " Good Ridence!"

You obviously don't understand the bullying I faced and the divine intervention it took to recover. And yes it was true bullying.

Obvious huh?! That is a dangerous comment. I'd be careful not to judge others. You were never in my shoes, Not to mention if its that obvious I would insult you by telling you how blind you must be. There is a God in heaven that is witness to what I have endured, also countless classmates that know what I was put through at the hands of fellow classmates. I'll save you A novel, you can always arrange to talk to me if you want clarification of what I'm saying.

My younger brother was bullied in high school by his so called "friends" which led him to moving to another town to attend boarding school. This placed a huge amount of stress on both him and my father with very real fears that he would be killed.

Bullying is never okay and should not ever be tolerated! It is wrong and can have a devestating impact on those who are bullied and their families.

My little friend Noah has been picked on also due to his mother dying, being smaller tham most kids at school due to being born at 15 weeks gestation and having two kidney transplants along with having gay Dads. It's not his fault and is very wrong!!

Your right Megan! It is so very wrong and it is not his fault what so ever! People should not be bullied for any reason! It really makes my blood boil! My nephew gets bullied and it breaks my heart as I have been there before myself!

The words never go away and leave a lasting effect to this day..... I tell all the kids I work with how words and actions can hurt for a very long time... Hope I have made a difference and maybe stopped a bully or 2.... I am still dealing with the after effects of bullying.

I don't understand the level of cruelty that some kids exhibits towards their peers............I don't remember this happening when I was in school(graduated in 1983).........was I blind? Prayers for the victims to be strong........prayers for the bullies to STOP.

I think that is why I grew to love the animals, they didn't judge you for how much money you had, what type of clothes you wore, or who you hung out with.

I personally know what it is like to have kids AND teachers bully you when your young. It makes you feel low, small, insignificant, less than everyone else. That is one of the worst feelings in the world. I can see why a kid would consider leaving this world, I never did that because I was raised with and in Gods love! I cried, asked my mom if I was retarded and things like that, but my mom and dad would talk to me and stand up for me at home and in public. My life as sweet, kind little...

I cried, asked my mom if I was retarded and things like that, but my mom and dad would talk to me and stand up for me at home and in public. My life as sweet, kind little Carolyn had to change in the 4th grade, just so I could survive. I put a wall up. Became mean right back and it wasn't a bluff! I took boys to the ground, backed mean girls into a corner and defended any other kid who was being picked on. I still knew how to be nice, but I had a chip on my shoulder and a grudge against anyone who thought they were better than anyone else. By the time I hit high school I was the one all the freshmen and older kids came too when a kid or teacher was being cruel, races, or violent! I had to fight in any way possible just to survive all my school years. I was a ball of excited mess when I graduated in 2000! Now I have 3 kids and there all in school now. I worry all the time, but they know mommy has there back. I don't want my kids or anyone else's to have to go threw what I did, or worse. We have to make it all STOP!
