Ever bullied or been?

Have you ever been a bully, or have you ever been on the receiving end of a bully's abuse? Bullies have been around for a long time, and bullying is a bigger problem in schools across the nation than most parents may realize. Starting in 2006, the state of Maryland started a special effort to curb bullying and harassment in its public schools. . . . Today in this first hour of Midday, we'll discuss ways of helping students who are the victims of bullying with Catherine Bradshaw, from the Johns Hopkins Center for the Prevention of Youth Violence, and Sharon Boettinger, Supervisor of counselors for Frederick County Public Schools. We'll also hear from Alexandra Wolff, a Howard County high student and anti-bullying activist who says Olympian Michael Phelps, who was bullied while growing up, is her inspiration.
