Bullying or also known as bullying It is a permanent harassment of one or more people towards a student, where verbal and physical aggressions usually occur and there is no apparent cause for such events to occur.
Unfortunately, school abuse has been increasing in recent years, and many children and young people are victims of these situations and if they are not detected in time, they can have very unfortunate consequences, which can even put their lives at risk.
Although they seem two different terms, bullying and cyberbullying are closely related. What really differentiates them is that the former is done directly in schools and learning centers, while cyberbullying occurs through a computer, cell phone and other technological means.
It is already an undeniable and overwhelming reality, that thousands of children and adolescents suffer psychological and physical abuse on the part of their own classmates on a daily basis, but that they have other scopes such as the Internet and websites and that can cause irreparable damage to both the child, as well as his entire family and social nucleus.
Although it is difficult to fight against an evil that afflicts the world population such as bullying and the so-called cyberbullying, today more than ever, it is imperative to provide our children and young people with tools for life, which allow them to defend themselves against situations that parents, family members, and teachers get out of hand.
