What is Physical bullying?

The bullies most often attack on school grounds. Middle school male students are usually the ones more affiliated with this type of harm. Studies show that people who physically bully others are more than likely to end up failing at life. Their victims are socially marginalized (fat, nerd, etc.) and the bullying will result in other acts of violence from the victim himself/herself.

- "losing" things
- skipping class
