October is Anti-Bullying Month. If you are a teen, kid, parent, teacher, or if you interact with any of these people, bullying probably has affected you somehow.
Bullying can take many forms, from teasing and spreading rumors about someone to physically hurting to exclusion to anonymous cyberbullying. Have you ever been bullied? Have you ever bullied someone?
