Maltreatment bullying and dating violence
15% of girls and 18% of boys reported being victimized at least twice over the same time period.
These figures suggest that in a classroom of 35 students, between 4 and 6 children are bullying and/or are being bullied.
Aggression within family relationships is termed “child abuse”, "elder abuse" or “intimate partner violence”.
One of the reasons for this is our lack of a national campaign to address bullying problems.
