Many school children in America are bullied and Finding Happiness in America takes much time to help parents and families cope with children who are victims of bullies. Research reveals key personality traits dwell in full-time bullies, including a desire to dominate others and a strong need to feel in control and to win. There’s also a pattern of aggressive behavior, no remorse for hurting others, and a refusal to accept responsibility for their own actions.
It’s ironic, but even though young children may own the problem today, their tormentors may suffer tomorrow. Their universal popularity will thaw as their “browbeater” reputation precedes them into high school, where maturing peers will frown upon them. They’ll have no one but themselves.
