Bullying Across the Lifespan

by on

As experts and the public ask for and learn more and more about bullying, not only is its presence in schools better known, but one begins to wonder about all the other situations across the lifespan where bullying occurs.

Some possibilities:

*Siblings bullying each other
*Parents bullying teachers
*Cliques that bully other cliques
*Boys that bully girls
*Bullying in college situations
*Marital bullying (a sign or precursor of abuse?)
*Political bullying

In fact, the concept may include many situations where one person is coerced, taunted, embarrassed by someone who at first appears to have some kind of edge, physically, emotionally, or through some position in a group or organiziation.
