What is bullying?
Bullying is when someone deliberately tries to hurt someone else they think is weaker than they are. In many cases, bullying repeated over and over can cause a lot of pain that lasts a long time. It can even lead to things like depression, anxiety and low self-esteem.
Bullying happens in many ways, but some common forms of bullying
are verbal (teasing, name-calling), physical (hitting, kicking, pushing, breaking someone’s toys or favorite things) or social (leaving someone out, spreading rumors).
Cyber-bullying is using social media or other technology like texting to threaten, embarrass or even damage a person’s reputation.
What you can do about bullying…
If you see someone being bullied or you’re being bullied, talk to a trusted adult about it.
When someone is being bullied, in person or online, stand up for them so that they know that they don’t deserve to be bullied.
Don’t encourage bullying by participating in bullying behavior.
