The overall lesson is we should be nicer to each other. If you see abusive behavior speak out against it and keep in mind you never know what pain someone is trying to overcome. The bully and person who is bullied both suffer.

There comes a time in life when you have a choice...to laugh and let go. Don't get me wrong, there are times I want to fashion the biggest mirror possible, and hold it up to the people with the thinnest of projections; but I don't.

This is my public declaration that I will no longer stand for the bullying of myself or anyone else. I choose to not be a victim and will not be staying silent any longer. The mean girl mentality is not ok as children, in high school, and certainly not as adults.

Sadly, we live in a culture of digital cruelty that no one is immune to. Whether you are a celebrity, the child of a sports figure, or an average person trying to get through life -- you can be struck down by the emotional keystrokes of cyber-bullets.

In reviewing both of these studies, I found it interesting that more grown-ups (parents) are now using social media and yet some are not heeding the advice about online safety that they should be teaching their children, such as oversharing information online.

I'm sad to report that even the greatest friendships end. Even the ones you thought were rock solid and iron clad; with history and memories, unconditional love and support. A B.F.F. breakup can be worse than a boy breakup: it creates the same kind of pain, rejection and abandonment, but it leaves a bigger hole in your heart.

Grownups, especially parents, have a difficult time being accountable for their behavior when it comes to their child. When confronted with a situation that triggers a tailspin, as we witness on reality shows such as Dance Moms or Cheer Perfection, parents are quick to defend their poor behavior saying they are only "supporting their child" or "speaking their mind."

I think the word bullying is overused in general -- with both adults and minors. We see the word being used inappropriately or out of context in many cases today... I think society has co-opted this term, which is sad, because it is actually weakening it and people are not taking it serious as they should.

Keep in mind parents, children watch and imitate your behavior -- offline and on. It is not about telling them what to do, but about showing them with your own actions. Be conscious of your words, your keystrokes, and your conversations.

Bullying doesn't come to a standstill after graduating from the playground, and giving grown-ups a pass on aggressive behavior only sets a bad example for our children still on the playground.

Only when the vast majority of us acknowledge bullies in all their forms for what they are -- only when enough of us take a stance against them, will things change.

There has been a great deal written and said lately about bullying among children and teens. Some claim there's an epidemic of bullying. But you don't have to be young to be a bully. Adults can be culprits as well.
