Decent Essays
Is bullying a big deal? Does it scar a child for life? Does it affect a child’s mental health in the future? According to Kathy Shaidle a blogger on “Taki’s Magazine.com” stated that, bullying merely is a fad that is over dramatized. Kathy minimizes the true problem and prevalence bullying has in society.
