    Bullying: What is it?

    Bullying is unwanted, repeated, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. Bullying can occur during or after school hours. While most reported bullying happens in the school building, a significant percentage also happens in places like on the playground or the bus. It can also happen travelling to or from school, in the youth’s neighborhood, or on the Internet.

    There are three types of bullying:

    • Verbal bullying is saying or writing mean things. Verbal bullying includes:
      • Teasing
      • Name-calling
      • Inappropriate sexual comments
      • Taunting
      • Threatening to cause harm
    • Social bullying, sometimes referred to as relational bullying, involves hurting someone’s reputation or relationships. Social bullying includes:
      • Leaving someone out on purpose
      • Telling other children not to be friends with someone
      • Spreading rumors about someone
      • Embarrassing someone in public
    • Physical bullying involves hurting a person’s body or possessions. Physical bullying includes:
      • Hitting/kicking/pinching
      • Spitting
      • Tripping/pushing
      • Taking or breaking someone’s things
      • Making mean or rude hand gestures
