Bullying among school children is a long-standing problem that detrimentally affects a substantial number of students. School officials have recognized the impact of bullying and have introduced various methods to manage the problem. To help ensure that these methods reduce bullying, it is critical that school personnel understand critical issues related to their success. In this article, the authors review the relationship between children's age and the implementation of intervention programs. They discuss the impact of parental and teacher involvement on bullying interventions. The authors also examine the content and implementation of current intervention programs. Finally, the authors present the limitations of the current research on anti-bullying programs.
