Kids point at adults for bullying

London: Ahead of the upcoming Anti-Bullying Week next week a survey has showed that children want adults to show each other more respect, with nearly half of them seeing grown-ups bullying each other.

"Being bullied can turn a child's life upside down; we should always check our own behaviour, especially around children, to make sure it sends a positive message of respect," said Martha Evans, director of the Anti-Bullying Alliance.

At least 41 per cent of 1,001 children in England aged 11 to 16 have seen grown-ups bullying each other in the past six months till October when the survey by the Alliance was conducted, the BBC reported.

With four out of 10 children pointing fingers at adult behaviour the study suggests a worrying trend setting a bad example for kids.

Children in that age group highlighted adults who behaved poorly to each other face-to-face, online or in the media.

Some 97 per cent even said they would like to see more respect shown between grown-ups, said the report published ahead of the annual charity push against bullying that starts November 12, the BBC reported.

The research also said a third of children experience bulling in oform or the other. Nearly all children said that showing respect to each other is important.
