Why do children get bullied?
Any child can get bullied just by being in the wrong place at the wrong time.Sometimes children who are popular, smarter or attractive can be victims of bullying and then also those who seem easy to hurt. Children can be picked on who look different or are different, came from a different culture or religion. Children who have a disability or are not good at sport. Children can also be targeted due to their size, age or strength and who lack social confidence.
