THE ROOT CAUSE
When asked why we have a bullying epidemic, studies have shown that most Americans believe we have a rudeness epidemic. A bullying cycle has been identified. It’s been shown that rudeness or incivility can lead to bullying, and bullying in turn can escalate into violence. The challenge is breaking the cycle at the beginning, the rudeness or incivility, which is the easiest part of the cycle to address.
