  2. Absolutely awesome article! Thank you for sharing this information. I have found that young boys tend to hide the fact they are bullied because they want to be seen as “macho.” My nephew attended this school this entire year and recently disclosed the fact that the kids at school are not nice to him.

    I will definitely share this article.
