Why do you think kids bully one another?
|It’s a power thing. I’ve never been a bully, but what I’ve witnessed is they usually didn’t have any friends. So, to make themselves feel bigger, they picked on quiet or kids who stayed by themselves.
|Kids bully one another to build self-esteem. Maybe they’ve been bullied at home by their parent(s) or siblings, so they pick a person who they can get their frustration off on.
|Kids can sense a person's shyness or lack of confidence. As human beings we have to stand out…they (bullies) think they’ll be liked by their peers.

|No.1, to cover up for their own mishaps. No. 2, some of them got bullied by their bigger brothers, so they take it out on the weaker ones.

|I think they bully one another because they either come from a dysfunctional home or they're looking for attention.
|Dysfunctional family, community, society and media. They send mixed messages on the issues of violence.
