One third of minors attribute the aggressions to children to their physical characteristics, to their character traits (shyness, sadness, negativity), or to "the ugly" and "different", according to the report Violence Game OVER, developed by the Children's Platform. This entity notes that the report, funded by the Ministry of Health, Consumption and Social Welfare, collects opinions and proposals that about 600 children between 4 and 17 years, have poured into the text of the Organic Law of comprehensive protection in the face of violence against children.
