It can also refer to the person doing the bullying....
A lot have been said about this problem based usually in schools from the elementary grades way beyond the HS level.
Threatening someone is punishable by law,but some get away with it because victims refuse to report such abuses to parents, or school authorities.
Some of these abuses lead to deaths....some become rejects of society,
refusing to live normally with the rest of the community.
Others simply become recluse and depend so much on parents for their existence.

LOOKING into the heart of the problem is a must.
This is a society that boasts of high-tech gadgets have long been immersed in improving life but has neglected the necessary things in life:that of family and inter-personal relationships.

habang nagtratrabaho bilang OFWs ang ating mga kababayan.
Ang pagkakawatak-watak ng pamilya
ay isa sa mga dapat isipin ng ating pamahalaan.
