TRUTH: Bullying is inexcusable and can never be dismissed as just "kids being kids." Bullying causes great emotional and psychological pain—causing kids to miss school, struggle with depression, contemplate suicide, and often times become a bully themselves. MYTH: Bullying is obvious and easy to identify TRUTH: Bullying often goes undetected because victims (and bystanders) feel too much shame and embarrassment to report it, feeling it is their own fault or feeling paralyzed by fear. Bullies intentionally use subtle, yet destructive tactics that are severe, threatening, and persistent. MYTH: Bullying is not that serious TRUTH: Bullying is any deliberate, hostile, physical, psychological, or verbal activity involving an imbalance of power with the intent to harm and induce fear. It is persistent, pervasive abuse that creates an intimidating or terrorizing environment. MYTH: Bullies are underachievers with low self- worth and are easily recognized. TRUTH: Bullies often appear "normal" and can hide behind a mask of friendship. They perceive and project popularity through power. Often times they have been victims of bullying themselves.
