Stress in a functional society is passed up to the elders who take responsibility. Stress in a dysfunctional society is passed down to the most vulnerable, thus children see and repeat this pattern of bullying as a method of stress relief. Thus the most vulnerable children are left holding the "bags" of society. To fix bullying we have to realise that this is the cause and make the changes to the adult world that are necessary. It's time to reverse the polarity on stress.
