When you're young, being the victim of bullying can be a common problem. According to the National Center for Educational Statistics, "One out of every five... students report being bullied."

Bullying comes in all forms, including verbal teasing, physical violence, and cyberbullying. Bullying also focuses on a variety of different "reasons."
