Bullying is a problem that seems to stain the lives of every generation of kids. It’s a problem that we often hear about in the news, and it’s a problem that we often try to sweep under the rug. But the truth is, bullying is a real issue, and it needs to be addressed.
Bullying can take many different forms – from verbal abuse to physical assault. And it can have devastating consequences for both the victim and the bully. Victims of bullying often experience depression, social isolation, and self-esteem problems. And bullies often have behavioral problems and difficulties forming relationships with others later in life.
So why do kids bully? There are many reasons – but most likely, it’s because they’re trying to gain power or control over someone else. Or maybe they’re just trying to fit in with their friends.
Bullying is like a disease if you let it take hold it can ruin lives. That’s why schools, communities, and friends need to take action at the first sign of trouble. Otherwise, sustained bullying can have a long term damaging effect on the psychology of those on the receiving end.
This graphic is intended to shed light on this important subject matter.

I am so against bullying. I am glad to know that communities are rallying against it.
I wasn’t so lucky when I was a child but I did know how to hold up and ignore the
creeps that resort to bullying
I went back to school in my 50’s when I was out of work. I was bullied by a group of 4 people in every class with with a weak or non-tenured teacher. I went to the program coordinator who referred me to the dean. I went to the dean 3 or 4 times but nothing changed. Then he was promoted and the position was not filled while I was there. I even went to the student council. Nothing changed. There is no way I would work in that field for fear I would run into one of them in a job.
My son was bullied when he was in Grade school. It’s saddening to know that so many kids are victims of bullying. Great infographic as always!
Is there a way to buy this graphic as a poster?
Hi Amy, you can definitely download it as a PDF file 🙂
Not just kids are the victims. There are just as many adults who are bullies. I have been stalked, cyberstalked and harassed for 7+ years by someone who used to be a friend, destroyed my marriage, is now married to my husband yet still threatens me and my friends. Law enforcement is worthless and an anti harassment order just made her get more creative in ways where I knew it was her and couldn’t prove it so they wouldn’t enforce the anti harassment. The day it expired, she was back with a vengeance.
Thank you for your efforts to bring this to public awareness.
it is going to go on my page
great information..bullying has become such a problem..all over
This is one of the saddest Infographics I have seen, it is so sad that so many kids have to suffer from bullying.
It is good to see this info put out there. People can be so cruel & do not realize how their words or actions affect people. Another great program is called “Be A star”, it is an anti-bullying organization sponsored by the WWE wrestlers ( my daughter is a member & huge fan)…
Are the statistics on the chart up to date? If so, is a poster of the chart avaIlable to purchase?
Insecure people bully.
Terrific infographic on such an important issue. I hate to see children suffer and have them so devastated that they take their lives because of bullying. Thanks for bringing such an important issue to the attention of others! 😉
Great design! The ending was a little clustered, but good job nonetheless
