I selected bullying because I believe that it is one of the major issues for this generation. I have four boys that are growing in a society where bullying is a major concern of mine.

There are many definitions of bullying the one I seem to come across in my research the most is, use of force and or verbal threats to force a child or adolescent to do something that he or she does not wish to do and or to humiliate the victim, usually in front of their peers, most likely in the same grade.

Males often use physical and verbal abuse towards their victims. Female bullying is different than male bullying, in the females are more likely to use words alone to torment their victims, rather than the threat of physical violence. Females may bully other girls with name calling or by spreading vicious and untrue rumors like their easy or they are trashy about the female victims to other classmate in their click.(www.bullyonline.org)(www.pacer.org/bullying)
