    FACT: Bullying occurs in about

    10 to 20 percent of seniors citizens. Evidence is mounting that points to the facts that, while we grow older,

    we dont necessarily grow up. The cattiness and aggressive

    tendencies of our youth are not automatically erased as the years accumulate. In fact, there comes a

    point where the years begin to pile on a host of problems that may cause an elder to revert to more

    childish behavior like bullying. Physical pain, disease, loneliness, fear, and vulnerability are all

    common symptoms of aging that can cause an el-der to lash out at their peers. While elder-to-elder

    bullying comes in many varieties, it usually involves ostracism of some form. Men tend to adopt a more direct style, preferring to verbally abuse someone

    to their face, or sometimes take a physical approach to their bullying. Women, on the other

    hand, engage in more behind-the-back or passive aggressive abusive style. Dont be a Bully!
