This particular bullying is not always seen, however it affects thousands of children plus their families every year, according to an individual rights NGO.

“ We have been only seeing the tip of the iceberg, because thousands of cases are not formally registered, either through
data-collection errors, or by a lack of working out for teachers and families to spot signs of bullying, ” said Beltran.
The director added that will bullying was a human-rights issue, leading to lower self-esteem, as well as health and training problems for victims.
“ They have a right to grow upward, happy and without fear, ” this individual stressed.
