    Should bullying only be managed and not eradicated?

    Should bullies be taught that difference is normal? If somebody is a Goth or emo, it's because they think differently (everybody knows that, but people disregard it for the sake of it). Should victims be taught how to defend themselves?

    Why is it obvious? The victim should be able to manage the situation also.

      The aggressor. But in cases of bullying multiple times by the same person then it becomes the victims fault too for not doing anything about it.

      No.

      I just think it's both parties that must resolve the situation.

      Right so thinking differently can be applied to all victims of bullying, so someone who gets bullied because they are in a wheel chair is in a chair because they think differently.

      I think you should study medicine, this is outstanding.

      Your point is a non sequitur.

      Glad to hear it, but since you have never been bullied how can you say that the victims are able to resolve the situation when you have never been in it yourself?

      Victims can always go to an adult they trust, but that never guarantees success. Bullies pick on people they know are an easy target, mentally and physically. They often form groups and isolate one person. When you are one person against a group, it's not exactly that simple.

      Displaying confidence and having social skills are key.

      This applies to both parties.

      So it's possibly my fault that my confidence was irreparably damaged because I was bullied to hell for a year. Bull****.

      It's still a conflict. Conflicts should be resolved and managed.

      The aggressor, if it carries on from school to work and they get caught bullying, they will get in a lot more trouble than at school.
