kids bullying

There's a new form of bullying on the rise, called "tagging." It's where two or more bullies target a specific child, and work together to harass that child in class, over lunchtime or during recess, reports KPHO.

According to Alert Recall founder Cecil Jackson, the harassment often occurs through many different classes, making it difficult for the victim to get away from the bullies.

This is yet another form of bullying to be on our radar. Cyber-bullying, text-bullying, bullying by fire ... when will it end?

Seriously, there’s nothing new about this except, possibly, using this particular word to describe the activity.

‘Tagging’ is not a new FORM of bullying it is a new NAME for bullying.

Why in the pictures does it seem that the bully is always a red head boy?
