As a parent, there seems that there is plenty of things to worry about as your children are growing up.  Are they happy? Are they being kind to others? Are they spending enough time working on homework? Are your children eating the correct foods? The list could go on forever. But one common concern shared by parents of school-aged children is bullying.

The Center  for Disease Control  defines bullying as any unwanted aggressive behavior(s) by another youth or group of youths, who are not siblings or current dating partners, involving an observed or perceived power imbalance and is repeated multiple times or is highly likely to be repeated. Bullying may inflict harm or distress on the targeted youth including physical, psychological, social, or educational harm. A young person can be a perpetrator, a victim, or both (also known as a “bully/victim”).
