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.
