What is Bullying?

Bullying is when someone uses is or her strength or "power" to control someone else. Sometimes this happens when someone hurts or scares another person on purpose, and the person begin bullied has a hard time defending himself or herself. Usually, bullying happens over and over.


Cyberbullying involves sending or posting hurtful, embarrassing, or threatening text or images using the internet, cell phones, or other digital communication devices. Using these technologies, cyberbullies can reach a wide group of people very quickly. Their goal: TO DAMAGE THEIR VICTIM'S REPUTATION AND FRIENDSHIPS.

Cyberbullying can involve:

  • Spreading rumors or posting false or private information
  • Getting other people to post or send hurtful messages
  • Excluding someone from an online group

David's Law

This law allows schools to combat and prevent cyberbullying by empowering them to investigate and address off-campus cyber-assisted bullying if it materially affects the school environment. “David’s Law” requires school districts to include cyberbullying in their district bullying policies and notify a child’s parents if he or she is a victim or alleged aggressor of bullying. It allows for schools to collaborate with law enforcement when serious or life-threatening cyberbullying situations arise. “David’s Law” gives parents and courts new tools to protect cyberbullying victims and strengthens options for schools and prosecutors in dealing with some of the most egregious forms of cyberbullying, such as suicide baiting. In recognition of bullying as a mental health issue, “David’s Law” also encourages schools to invest in counseling and rehabilitation services for both victims and aggressors of bullying.

Big picture

When does bullying happen? and Where do kids bully in your school?

Bullying is most likely to happen at school rather than on the way to or from school. One reason for this is that there is more time to bully someone during the school day than in the brief time before or after school.

Bullying can happen anywhere and at any time in school. Kids who bully, usually do so when there are fewer supervisors and a greater number of students to supervise such as during lunch time or at recess.
