The ironic thing is that at 17 she doesn’t have her driver’s license yet, and is driving on a learner’s permit.

We are hearing so much about bullying these days. Of course it's been around since the dawn of time. I believe the best way to combat bullying is sports/after school activities or clubs.
A lot of the kids that are bullied go straight home and do nothing but think about the bad stuff that happens to them and how they are going to make it stop. It consumes their thoughts.
I was bullied in school, but I never had time to think about any of that because I was involved in sports (baseball, basketball, bowling, soccer)
