For their safety they are sent to live with distant relative of some sort called the Professor.
Once there, Lucy, the youngest, discovers a wardrobe that transports her to another world. She meets a faun. He warns her, after telling her that he is supposed to betray her, that the White Witch will be after her.

Bullying and cyberbullying at colleges, universities

According to StopBullying.gov, an official U.S. government Web site managed by the Department of Health and Human Services in partnership with the Department of Education and Department of Justice, definitions of bullying vary, but “most agree that bullying involves:
• Imbalance of Power: people who bully use their power to control or harm and the people being bullied may have a hard time defending themselves.
• Intent to Cause Harm: actions done by accident are not bullying; the person bullying has a goal to cause harm.
