"I'm not saying they shouldn't have consequences but these laws often reach down to a child of age six, five. I mean it's incredible," says Susan Porter, author of Bully Nation: Why America's Approach to Childhood Aggression is Bad for Everyone.

Porter sat down with ReasonTV's Tracy Oppenheimer to discuss the anti-bully movement and how laws, labeling and the media are only agitating the problem. She says that kids are actually suffering because of these anti-bully efforts.

"They are becoming less resilient," says Porter, "if you're now a victim, and you think of yourself as a victim, you are much more apt to get victimized."

About 6 minutes.

Produced by Tracy Oppenheimer. Shot by Zach Weissmueller.
