Tips and Expert Advice on Dealing with Bullies

Back-to-school and bullying seem to go hand-in-hand now that summer is over and children are grouped together at big schools.  These days, bullying—especially cyberbullying—is on everyone’s mind, especially with the string of national tragedies (college freshman Tyler Clementi and high school freshman Phoebe Prince come to mind) that have made the news as a result of mean kid tactics.
