Bullying is When ...

Bullying is when someone or a group of people with more power repeatedly and intentionally causes hurt or harm to another person or group of people who feel helpless to respond. Bullying can continue over time, is often hidden from adults and will probably continue if no action is taken.

Bullying may be defined as the activity of repeated, aggressive behavior intended to hurt another person, physically or mentally. Bullying is characterized by an individual behaving in a certain way to gain power over another person.

Bullying Is Not:

1. Single episodes of social rejection or dislike

2. Single episode acts of nastiness or spite

3. Random acts of aggression or intimidation

4. Mutual arguments, disagreements or fights.

These actions can cause great distress. However, they're not examples of bullying unless someone is deliberately and repeatedly subjecting you to this kind of behaviour and it is designed to cause harm to you.

More On What Bullying Is

Bullying is a relentless form of abuse. Bullying can cause very serious harm that may last a lifetime. Bullying includes repeated, intentional acts over time designed to enforce power over another, specifically by intimidating, hurting, scaring, or ostricizing another group.

Bullying behaviors can hurt an individual or a group of people, either by verbal comments, physical harm, coercion, emotional abuse, or threats. Bullying happens in the neighborhood, your community, church, work, and anywhere else in which you interact with other people.

Bullying can be physical, emotional, or verbal, depending on what means the bully uses to attack you. Physical bullying includes hitting, kicking, biting, throwing objects, and anything intended to physically cause pain.

Exclusion or social alienation bullying includes behaviors intended to exclude or alienate another individual. This can be starting rumors, talking negatively, being condescending toward someone, or finding ways to isolate the individuals.

Verbal bullying is using using words to hurt another person. This can include name-calling, vulgar remarks, put-downs, yelling, and verbally intimidating others.

Cyberbullying is a newer form of bullying, in which technology is used to harm another individual. This includes threatening emails, text messages, instant messages, flaming someone on a chat room, or otherwise using technology to harm, upset, threaten, or intimidate others.
