Because bullies are not punished by the school enough, and parents refuse to believe the fact that their children are bullies, so these bullies get away with the things they do. If they are punished and zero tolerance policies are implemented, bullying can be eradicated. But it also needs the help of the parents to be aware and involved.

Because bullying originates from violence: bullies were often bullied themselves, that's why they feel the need to do it to others. It creates a loop of violence, and loops are hard to stop.

People don't want to believe that it's a serious problem when it really is. People don't want to believe that their child is a jerk.

People don't report bullying or if they are bullied they don't speak up. People don't see it as bullying only as harsh criticism which is wrong and makes bullying harder to abolish.

Because bullying stems from people feeling insecure. So, until insecurity is solved bullying can't be solved.

It is difficult because even though you complained more about them they will never shut up so they always bring people down

Bullying is a perfectly natural; although, it definitely isn't justified by that. Logically, I don't think that anyone can fully stop bullying, but we can lower the amount, raise awareness, and help the victims. In the words of Andy Biersack," When people hurt you over and over, think of them like sandpaper. They may scratch and hurt you a bit, but in the end you end up polished and they end up useless." Finally, don't you dare forget the sun, and I'll try to be here for you.

it is difficult because you'll always have naive and uneducated people in a society. Simple as that..and indeed it's sad, very sad.

Bullying hasn't stopped because instead of being encouraged to empathize with others, they are shamed for being hurtful without an explanation as to why that behavior is unacceptable.

many people will always feel the need to be better than others, bullying is way for people to feel this.

Bullying is a cycle and people keep falling into that cycle. They can't stop and you can never truly find all the bullies in a specific environment.

As long as there is difference and unique individuals in this world there will always be bullies. We just have to remember bullies are those who are usually more damaged than ourselves.

Often times, those who are doing the bullying have hurt within their own lives. It helps them become distracted from their own hurt by bringing down others. Bullying can be full of many lies that people use just to satisfy themselves. If you are able to, being direct with who is bullying you can often scare them away or show them that you have had enough. Sometimes that doesn't work, and individuals may need to seek help from someone else with a greater influence. Bullying does no good for the victim or the initiator. It is not easy to put a stop to it, but someone has to try.
