There’s no surprise when it’s said that bullying is a major problem among the school-aged children of the US. However, the very unfortunate part is that according to a new national survey, bullying is an increasingly big problem for kids with autism and Asperger’s syndrome.
It absolutely should be changed! Shame on the people who feel it’s funny to do this. They must feel bad about themselves!!!! I guess having parents who teach you never to make fun of anyone who is different. Glad I was taught that!!!
There you go Bradford!...
Sad to say but parents that cannot say "no" to their children and laugh at everything they say are creating bullies!!!
