What is going on in the schools and homes on this planet? If teens are so worried about being bullied this suggests that these same teens have possibly witnessed other teens being bullied because of the way they look, doesn't it? Also this suggests these teens may have read something in the news or on television regarding the fact that someone of their age level was being bullied because of their physical appearance! Certainly I am aware that in the past few years some teens (of both sexes) have committed suicide because they were being bullied at school and after nothing was done about the bullying! The fact that teens are indicating that they are undergoing plastic surgery to possibly help them not be bullied in schools is a very troubling admission regarding what is going on in the Schools in the United States and Great Britain! I thought that many school districts had developed programs to educate children about bullying so bullying would not become a serious problem in schools. . Apparently these programs are not working if teens are so worried about being bullied that they are actually having plastic surgery to avoid the possibility of being bullied in the future!
