Announcing a contest for teenagers to inform us about bullying and how to address it.
Please help spread the word by encouraging young people to apply by writing an essay of up to 500 words about bullying or how to address it. Teachers are welcome to make this a class assignment, but kids should only submit their essays if they are really prepared for the essays to be published with their names attached. It can be cathartic to share these experiences, but also embarrassing, so think this through carefully. And remember, too, that this is for a newspaper and must be the truth – no exaggerations whatsoever! If you’re talking about someone else, you can use just a first name or initial, to protect their privacy.
Get the complete cast, production details, reviews and trailer of Bully on Yahoo! Movies. Over 18 million young people in the United States will be bullied this year.

Does school bullying cause suicide? By Maureen Healy...
Over the last few weeks, I have had a flurry of calls from "stressed out" parents because their kids said to them: "I am going to commit suicide if you make me go back to that school. I want to end it all. My 'friends' at school laughed at me when I was being teased and it was horrible. I hate life." Well, the good news is that every parent that sought my help now has their kids feeling healthier and happier. But the question remains: Is bullying the cause of some suicides?
X Factor star Cher Lloyd has been talking about being bullied online.
The teenager has been the target of online bullies since she became a pop star. She says it has been worse than the bullying she had as a child at school, when kids teased her about her gypsy background.
Cher says she didn’t talk to anyone about it because she thought she could handle it on her own, but said: “I think that’s the worst thing you could possibly do.”
Children with depression are at increased risk for bullying, the results of a new study suggest.
The finding challenges the widely held belief that bullying leads to psychological problems such as depression, according to the Arizona State University researchers.
"Often the assumption is that problematic peer relationships drive depression. We found that depression symptoms predicted negative peer relationships," Karen Kochel, an assistant research professor in the School of Social and Family Dynamics, said in a university news release.
It's time for all adults to stop being passive enablers of behavior unbecoming of a civil society.
"Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me."
These were words to live by when I was a young girl, which wasn't all that long ago. Sage wisdom dished out when we lamented that we were being teased or bothered by someone. Nowadays, with all the forms of social media, mean words don't dissipate into the atmosphere; they last and can destroy a youth in moments. Why is it then so hard to get help quickly?

Taylor shared this very personal story of her time being bullied. It shows the pain that comes when people you trust break that through their actions. Imagine that it happens to you all the time. How would you be as you grow up? Will you trust anyone around you? How will you treat others? This can be a life long lesson from just these few years. Something we should all know and understand. ~Alan Eisenberg

Fifth-grader Landon Devinney thinks she’s stupid.
She’s heard that taunt so many times that she’s started to believe it.
The bullying started in kindergarten when Devinney began wearing eyeglasses and continued as she advanced through North Belmont Elementary.
“It was just mean words, saying, ‘You’re ugly. You have four eyes,’” Devinney, 11, said. “I’m stupid, because that’s what all the bullies would say.”
The bullying didn’t stop at verbal abuse.
