An article in Rueters.com (Health Section) today, gives the results of a Finnish study on school bullies. ("Schoolyard Bullies, Victims Have Problems Later On")
It found that both bullies and victims had significantly higher mental problems when grown. The ones with the most problems were both bullies and victims.
I read an article months ago about how one U.S. school dealt with bullies. The Principal had every student complete an anonymous survey on who the school bullies were.
When the same dozen or so names kept popping up, he pulled them into his office one at a time. Most had problems at home, and the Principal arranged for all to get some form of counseling.
Months later, the students were much happier, and there was significantly less conflict and fighting in the school.
