Bullying would be the greatest challenge that teens face because it affects so many people, everywhere. No matter the age, or where it is, bullying is prevalent is so many places.

Bullying is the greatest challenge in my opinion because it can lead to so many horrible thing. Bullying and suicide are linked together strongly. It can push kids over the limit without anyone even knowing. According to Bullyingstatistics.org, " resulting in about 4,400 deaths per year, according to the CDC. ... Bully victims are between 2 to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims, according to studies by Yale University. A study in Britain found that at least half of suicides among young people are related to bullying" This shows that suicide and bullying go hand in hand. Bullying leads to horrible things that no one should even consider.

In my opinion, Cyberbullying is the worst kind. It can go on all day long. When kids are Cyberbullied, they really can't seem to get away from it. They are constantly put in the position where they are receiving comment after comment on the internet where everyone can see. According to Stopbullying.gov, "Cyberbullying can happen 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and reach a kid even when he or she is alone. It can happen any time of the day or night. Cyberbullying messages and images can be posted anonymously and distributed quickly to a very wide audience. It can be difficult and sometimes impossible to trace the source." Bullying online is easier than bullying in person, they feel more powerful behind the screen.

All forms of bullying are very serious issues that should be taken care of right then and there. 43% of kids have reported to be bullied at least once in their life. By speaking to an adult and getting it taken care of, hopefully that number will go down.
