Bullying has always been around but the way it's done may change over time. Some say that with the internet, it's gotten worse. A lot of people are trying  to stop the problem all together. For the past month, groups have visited all the middle schools in Harrison, Marion and Monongalia counties to talk about it.

It's believed that bullying starts to escalate in middle school. That's why Bridgeport Police Victim's Advocate Tammy Renzelli wanted to visit those schools to talk about it. Her goal is to head into elementary schools next year to start even younger. She said that students were very open to talk about bullying and they all acknowledged that it happened. Most said that girls were worse than boys.
 
Anti-bullying is becoming a national push. It's not about just not being a bully but stopping the ones that are.
 
"There wasn't one school that we went to that someone didn't raise their hand that there was a bully in the classroom. We went them to gain on where they can go, how to prevent it and most importantly how not to be a bystander. How they can intervene and not put themselves in harms way," said Renzelli.
