I don't think it will ever be completely stopped, as Gator said, it's part of human nature. I think that it will always be a big problem as long as parents tell kids to just 'suck it up' and kids are too scared to tell anyone.
I don't think it can be completely stopped. It can be corrected and handled, but I think in school age kids, it is part of human nature, and part of growing up.
You are so young....live and enjoy your life....if someone comes along to share in that with you, great! It took me a long time to find my special someone, and I never knew what people meant by "you just know" but nothing has ever been more true.
