This paper is a response to the problem of the victimization of children by their peers during educational activities and the government action to limit its effects. The purpose of our paper is not only to bring into discussion the implications of changing the cultural way of approaching children's violent behavior, but to present the outcome of an early intervention. In addition, we underline that a hostile environment in the early years of life can be created by an individual's peers, thus establishing a future pattern of behavior for aggressors and victims alike. The objective of this study is to examine the recent increase of bullying issues and will include an overview of its causes and effects, a description of the main physical symptoms caused by the impact of bullying and a summary of strategies that can be used to address it. Bullying is a form of aggression that almost always involves an imbalance of power. This paper will examine bullying as a form of relational violence because it is much more frequent than physical bullying. We will define relational aggression as any psychological, social or emotional aggression between people in relationships, whereby "the group" is used as a weapon to hurt others. Finally, we will reveal the current prevention and intervention programs based on emotional education and cultivation of an emphatic behavior.
