Peter C. Bradbury, the prominent author, used his knowledge and personal experience to shed some new light on bullying. He talks to NoBullying.com about taking a closer look at Bullying.
When asked about the reason why he started writing and raising awareness about bullying, he said, “My grandson Bryce. He is seventeen now but all through high school he has been bullied, verbally and physically. His parents have complained of course, but nothing has ever been done and they have never had the resources to move or home school him. The reason he gets bullied? He’s autistic.”
He also alludes to the fact that “Cyber bullying is increasing and is far more harmful. Everybody is almost attached these days to the social media and if people have it in for you, then you can’t escape it. Facebook pages are created, web sites are dedicated to you, and the content is often devastating.”
As to why children aren’t reporting cyber bullying, he says, “when you see that only 4% of witnessed bullying is reported by teachers, is it any wonder? Children don’t trust the adults to fix the problem, so they don’t tell them.”
