MEDFORD, Ore. -- A speaker known around the world is re-defining bullying for local students. Paul Coughlin spoke to elementary students, staff and coaches at the Grace Cascade Christian School District Wednesday. He hopes to teach students that bringing others down will have a huge impact on their lives, and not in a good way. 

Coughlin said there are many myths behind bullying, and it is important to know that it is a cultural problem, not a school problem.

"Bullying starts with human nature, it's pleasurable to dominate and control another human being," Coughlin said. 

Coughlin is giving a series of anti-bullying presentations Wednesday and Thursday. He spoke about the harsh realities that can come when children decide to bring down others. He said it is something that can be changed.

"With good parenting, with good culture with good society, and good teaching we can, not eradicate the number one form of child abuse in the nation, but we can make a big difference," Coughlin said. 

He is having presentation for any local parent interested in learning about bullying strategies. It's happening Thursday, Jan. 11 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Cascade Christian High School commons.
