WHAT IS BULLYING?
Bullying is the repetitive insulting, taunting, or exclusion of an individual, in a harmful way. It is usually done by one who has low self-esteem and wants to feel better or become popular.
HOW TO PREVENT BULLYING
TYPES OF BULLYING
There are multiple types of bullying, like verbal bullying, physical bullying, social bullying, or cyber bullying. Verbal bullying involves inappropriate name-calling, physical bullying involves one person getting beaten up, social bullying usually involves the purposeful exclusion of others, and cyber bullying is bullying over the Internet, usually via social media like Facebook, Twitter, or Instant Messaging like Skype.
ROLES IN BULLYING
There are usually three roles in bullying: there are two direct roles, the bully and the target, and there is one indirect role, the bystander. The bully is the person insulting or harming the target, who is being bullied. The bystanders are people who don’t do any bullying, but they don’t try to intervene or stop the bullying. This happens because the bystander doesn't want to be bullied themselves, so they figure that if they act nice to the bully or even help out a little bit, they will be safe. Unfortunately, standing up is one of the only ways to stop a bully, and that doesn't happen very often.
