What is Bullying?
Bullying is when someone uses his or her power over another
person to make them feel bad on purpose. Bullying is not having a
single argument or fight with someone. It isn’t saying something
bad to someone once when you are angry. Bullying continues over
days, or weeks, or months.
Bullying can include one or more of
- Hitting, kicking, pinching, spitting at or threatening
- Name calling
- Making a fool of someone
- Teasing or sending nasty notes
- Spreading rumours and gossip about someone
- Breaking or stealing someone's belongings on purpose
- Repeatedly leaving someone out by not talking to them, or not
letting them join in
- Sending nasty texts, emails or messages
- Saying hurtful things about people’s friends or family
BUT it is not bullying when two children of around the same age
and strength have a one-off fight or quarrel.
