It can effect these young children for the rest of their lives. It can lead to suicides, low-self-esteem, lack of marriages, high divorce rates, low job retention, unemployment just to name a few.

      A high school in my school district has a program called Bully Guards. These are senior jocks who are appointed to look over underclassmen who are new, shy, or targets of bullying. The underclassmen do not know that they are being watched over and kept safe. The approach was different the first year that this was tried. This program is in place at Johnson High School in San Antonio, Texas. There was a national story on it several years ago. Google it for a more detailed story.
