Effectively addressing bullying is a challenge for any school, but successfully tackling how school-aged girls bully one another is particularly difficult. The relational aggression that girls engage in includes spreading rumors, exclusionary tactics, manipulating friendships and relationships, and oftentimes takes place in a network of friends. Further complicating the issue is the social media and digital speech of our girls, many of whom have mastered cyber-bullying as the “weapon of choice” in their aggressive behavior against others.
