Too many adults are failing to recognise the consequence of bullying because they "don't take it seriously" and still see it as "part of growing up", a charity chief has warned.
Emma-Jane Cross, CEO and founder of Beat Bullying said:
Far too many European citizens still see bullying as part of growing up and don't take it seriously.
This is pushing young people to the brink with some even resorting to harming themselves in order to cope.
How many more children have to tragically lose their lives before these outdated perceptions change?
