    See my answer to the question about bullying and fighting in schools as well as this.
    Fighting should never be tolerated, in or out of schools.
    Schools need to take all incidents of bullying seriously and take action against those doing the bullying, but also work with those that are being bullied to give them ways of boosting their confidence. My cousin was badly bullied at school, and even though he is now 40 years old he still hates my neighbour who did the bullying, and has never had a good job because he’s never had the confidence to push himself. So some help for him when he was a teenager could have made all the difference to the rest of his life. I don’t want anyone else to have to go through what he went through.

    I agree with Lynette on this one. Fighting and bullying should not be tolerated.

    I agree with the Lynette. If you are being bullied you have to tell someone about it and get help. If you don’t feel you can talk to anyone face to face you could call childline on 0800 1111, they have people who will listen to you confidentially and not judge you. There is also a childline website where you can e mail a counsellor.

    I agree with Lynette. Fortunately, the new Government is planning to change the rules, to give more power to the schools to stop bad behaviour. That should be a great help.
