Beating the Bullies

Part of Being A Man

Half of young people in the UK have experienced being bullied, and young boys are twice as likely to bully than girls (The Annual Bullying Survey 2016). Why are boys more likely to bully and why can this behaviour persist into adulthood and the workplace? And what can be done to break this pattern?
