Bullied Children May Resort to Violence
According to a new study, large numbers of U.S. high school students who are bullied take weapons to school.

"Victims of bullying who have been threatened, engaged in a fight, injured or had property stolen or damaged are much more likely to carry a gun or knife to school," said study senior investigator Dr. Andrew Adesman, chief of developmental and behavioral pediatrics at the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York.

In this segment, Dr. Adesman explains the study and how parents of bullied teens can help their children learn to cope and take charge of their fear, without resorting to violence.
