    How Bullying May Shape Adolescent BrainsBullying is a hot button issue.  No child should be bullied.  However, research shows that the word "bully" is one of the most misused words.  There is a wide range of child and youth behaviors, and a continuum of undesired behaviors, but not all amount to bullying.
