Kids have got to speak out over bullying

WE are suffering from an emotional disconnect where bullying has become sadly prevalent.

In many schools worldwide, pilot programmes are encouraging schoolchildren to talk about their problems – the idea is to help young people address problems, rather than let them fester.

The aim is to figure out the frustration and anger that is driving our kids to bully others, because happy people don't bully.

As for the kids out there, life is too short to be unhappy. Tell your parents, tell your teachers – it may not get much better, but at least you won't be alone in this.
