First in a three-part series: It is far too common. A child is embarrassed online. Maybe other kids call her names, whisper about her when she walks by, leave her out of group activities. Maybe it gets physical, or things are stolen from her. Any, or all of these things, can happen over and over again. The Federation often receives calls from parents concerned that their child is a victim of bullying. There are ways to prevent it.
