Bullying awareness: Your story

October is National Bullying Prevention Month, a time when schools and communities shine a light on how to stop abuse among kids and teenagers.

 

Social scientists define bullying as repeated physical abuse or verbal intimidation by a bigger or stronger person towards a smaller or weaker one. Bullying can cause short-term and long-term psychological damage. It's not the same as interpersonal conflicts or teasing.

 

This is the place to share your bullying story. Whether you experienced it as a child, or are dealing with the problem as a parent, we invite you to talk about what you’ve experienced -- and how you think we can stop the problem.

 

Please share your thoughts in a short video (under 2 minutes) or in a written story accompanied by an original photo. You could be featured in CNN’s coverage of bullying this month.

 

And please join us on October 29 at 3 p.m. ET for a Google Hangout, where we will be discussing this topic. And please share your questions!
