For Over 37 Years, Long Island's Leading Non-Profit Organization Dedicated to Preventing Bullying and Child Abuse

The Targets

Bullies can pick on anyone. It doesn’t matter-you can be short or tall, fat or thin, wear glasses or not wear glasses. It can be as simple as musical chairs-one day you are in, another day you are out.

There really isn’t a “victim personality” but some of the latest research indicates that it is usually a combination of situational and social risk factors that make some children more vulnerable than others to being bullied. Perhaps you are the “new kid in school” (that would be a situational factor) or maybe you don’t have many friends (that would be a social risk factor). No matter what the circumstance: no one deserves to be bullied.
