Beyond basics, how can bullying be stopped?

Defined by Wikipedia, bullying is aggressive behavior manifested by the use of force or coercion to affect others, particularly when the behavior is habitual and involves an imbalance of power (social and/or physical power). Bullying can be emotional, verbal or physical. Wikipedia does not say bullying is something just children must deal with in the school yard. In fact, bullies exist throughout life, though their success as adults is perhaps more limited by other adults who know what bullies are trying to perpetrate. We agree that children are the most vulnerable to bullying, given school settings that have long served the bullying mindset.
