Bullying has been around forever, but it’s really come to the forefront over the last few years with experts and educators weighing in with different ways to solve this problem that affects so many kids.

Recently Nadia Ilse, a 14-year-old girl in Georgia, was given complimentary plastic surgery so she could pin back the ears that had made her the target of bullies. In addition, the surgeon evened out her nose and her chin.
