Bullying can happen anywhere even out side of school where no one can protect you. Being bullied is a very serious problem, it can affect the way people live their life and treat other people. Bullying can push people over the limits, many people who have been bullied have committed suicide that is how serious bullying is.

At school, bullying most often takes place during break-time, during class, and at lunch.
Some students also report being bullied before and after school, in and around the environments of the school campus.

Bullying can start in primary schools and reaches a peak in the secondary school. Bullying behaviour decreases in college but does not disappear altogether.
