What is Bullying?

Bullying is when a person verbally, mentally, or aggressively picks on someone that can't stand up for themself so that the bully feels more powerful. Bullying happens at all ages in all environments and is an ongoing issue; it never just happens once.

What are the different types of bullying?

The types of bullying are verbal, social, and physical. Verbal bullying includes teasing, name calling, inappropriate comments, and threats. Social bullying is things like excluding people, embarrassing someone, telling people not to be their friend, and spreading rumours. Hitting, tripping, pushing, breaking their things, and beating up , are all examples of physical bullying.

People involved in Bullying

The people involved in bullying are: the bully, the target, the bully's supporters, bystanders, and some times the target's friends join in to look cool. The bully is the most prominent person in a bullying situation, they are the ones who actually abuses the target. The target is the person who is picked on and hurt by the bully. The bystanders are the people who witness the bullying and usually don't do anything about it.

How can YOU help someone who is being bullied?

People only bully so that they can get a reaction out of someone because they are insecure about themselves. You can help someone being bullied by comforting them, standing up for them, telling an adult if they are too scared, and most importantly telling them not to show the bully that it is affecting you. If the bully can't get a reaction out of them, then the bully will stop and pick on someone else.
