The study "The phenomenon of bullying in schools," the first of its kind in Romania, conducted by the Child Helpline Association in the period March to June 2014, on a sample of 2,000 students shows that nearly half of children in Romania (46%) have been at one time or another victims of bullying, 53% of the bullied being girls and 47% boys.

The executive director of Child Helpline Association, Catalina Florea, states that it is alarming that more than half of the children surveyed (51.45 %) responded that the school does not take the phenomenon of bullying seriously – an aspect that has been identified as such through the statements recorded via the Child Helpline - 116 111.
