Why is it Important to Respond to Bullying?

Bullying hurts, no one deserves to be a victim of bullying, and everyone has the right to be treated with respect regardless of any differences. People who bully others need to learn different ways of behaving and Bladium has a responsibility to respond promptly and effectively to any and all issues of bullying.
