Bullying or peer violence causes much suffering. Although traditionally the relationship between bully-bullied is the most emphasized in literature, there are more players. Because of the distress caused to the victim, the reinforcement received by the stalker whose aggressive behavior goes unpunished, and the learned helplessness of spectators, it must be tackled as a group and social problem. Prevention is the best cure and we should work as a team in schools, including students, families and in some cases the pediatrician (as a promoter of physical and mental health in childhood).
