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.
