  Bullying in schools getting worse
Updated 05 November 2001, 15.11
Bullying in the playground getting worse
Bullying is making more and more of your lives a misery, with some children so traumatised they attempt suicide.

The charity Childline, which was set up to help bullied and abused children, has been holding a conference to figure out ways of fighting bullying.

Racist attacks

They've experienced things like robbery, racist attacks or being plain ignored.

The prime minister's wife Cherie Booth was in charge of the conference.

She's complained some schools won't admit they have a bullying problem and that until they do it will be hard to wipe it out.
