What is Bullying? Bullying is when someone repeatedly and on purpose says or does mean or hurtful things to another person who has a hard time defending himself or herself. This definition has 3 important parts. First, it shows an aggressive action that is unwanted. Second, it involves a pattern of behavior over time. Finally, there is a power difference between the two people involved. A conflict between two people where name calling and even shoving occurs does not necessarily constitute bullying. If both people push and both people call names, it is most likely a conflict. However, if a child is picked on daily by a student or group of students, that is most likely a bullying situation.
Physical intimidation or assault; oral or written threats; teasing, name calling; threatening looks, gestures, or actions; cruel rumors; false accusations and social isolation are all examples of bullying. Bullying also includes cyberbullying.
