Here are some reports/survey about bullying

Is Cyber Bullying more harmful than Traditional Bullying???Face-to-face bullying is more cruel and harsh than online attacks"You see their smile, hear their laugh, see their face, see you break down A 15 year old boy Generally the worst aspect of traditional bullying is that most of the people suicide rather than facing one more day of bullying. They hang themselves or jump out from a building. Loss of life is a very big thing. Often you can pause yourself from cyber bullying by cutting yourself from technology but how will you respond to Physical bullying? There are laws and legal penalties for bullying but they are too feeble to stop bullying. In Pakistan it is not as much as it is done in other countries for example India has a high rate of people suiciding because of fear of ragging. In US every 1/8 child is bullied. Often lack of support from parents is also root of students suiciding. ALIASGHER NOORUDDIN
