Bullying behavior among children and teens has a long history.
But in today's society, its intensity and prevalence are fueled by mixed
cultural messages and facilitated by technology. Whether face to face or
via cyberspace, bullying is increasingly leading children and youths in
dangerous directions. At the University of Maine, researchers in
psychology and education are looking at the causes and effects of
bullying. Each is studying different aspects of this form of aggression
and all are coming to the same basic conclusion: Children and teens
increasingly don't know how to relate to each other, and the adults in
their lives need to help. See related story here.
