Adult bullies who have not outgrown their childhood narcissism probably do qualify, but little kids are just going to be that way.
This is why I'm not terribly optimistic that we can solve the problem of bullying in our time.
However, I'm quite confident that it will never go away entirely.

Children are not born appreciating that other people are actually just like they are with their own needs and independent rights.Bullying Causes Long-Term Emotional Damage The experience of being bullied can end up causing lasting damage to victims.This is both self-evident, and also supported by an increasing body of research.I can vividly recall days when I would have to launch myself out of the school bus door and run as fast as I could up the hill to the shelter of my house.A group of older neighborhood boys would be after me for reasons that were never entirely clear.
