ABSTRACT
The author examines school bullying in the U.S. and how society reacts to aggressive childhood behavior. She states that many statistics reveal increases in bullying but suggests it may be due to an expanding definition of bullying that includes social exclusion, name-calling, and sarcasm. Based on her experience as a school counselor, she describes how this change in definition has made normal childhood behavior seem dangerous and suggests focusing more on children's psychological development.
