Teen Health: Bullying

Bullying is common. You may have been bullied yourself or seen it happen to a friend.

Often people are bullied because someone sees them as 'different.' This difference can relate to their culture, physical appearance, learning disability, sexual orientation, religion, or because they're new to a school or neighborhood.
