    What annoys me these days, and I see it happening with both adult and children/teen bullies, is the emergence of videos on social media glamorising bullying. As far as I am concerned, the person filming the bully carrying out their abuse is just as bad. It would be interesting to see just how "big" the bully really is wehn he/she isn't surrounded by a group of their mates with smartphones out recording everything

    Well said. All "Bullies" are actually weak because they "prey" on people they (assume) are weaker than them. In my experience once you stand up to them they **** off.

    For what it's worth, Taylor Swift was bullied in school. I would guess because they could see something "special" about her. Even though my best friends abandoned me and bullied me in "High School" I won joint "Sportsman" of the Year with a guy I always thought was miles a head of me.

    When I (finally) stood up to the guy that was bullying me, he stopped.

    I can't emphasize the importance of #3 and #4 in handling bullies: Stop being a victim and stand up for yourself while not being emotional. This is what I would tell my kids/teens in managing bullies. Look at them in the eye and push back verbally. Bullies would just look for a weaker target.

    If this happens at work, document the incident (record evidence) and report to HR.
