Nationwide Research on Bullying in Children and Adolescents

"The Smile of the Child", as a European recognized "National Center against Intra-School Violence and Bullying" announced on Wednesday, March 9 in an online event the launch of an annual nationwide campaign entitled "Speak Now" about the phenomenon of Intra-school / Intra-school Violence / Bullying.


As part of this initiative, FOCUS BARI sponsored a nationwide survey of a sample of 1.000 people aged 16-64 on the opinions and experiences of the Greek public on the phenomenon of bullying at a young age. The results of the research showed that:

  • Eight out of ten Greeks consider verbal assault and emotional blackmail to be the most common forms of bullying.
  • Six out of ten Greeks have personally been bullied in their childhood / adolescence, with the phenomenon showing the same proportion of men and women
  • The main places where bullying takes place are education / schools.
  • Bullying is practiced mainly by peers, with the main reason being their need to stand out, to "make fun", to imitate others, but also out of feelings of inferiority!
  • When bullied, a child feels fear, despair / despair, but also shame, misery and guilt
  • Unfortunately, most children who are bullied do not talk about it, nor do they ask for help from anyone while
  • The minority of children who ask for help are mainly addressed to their parents, and to a lesser extent to some official institution.
