What is bullying?
According to StopBullying.gov, “Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems.”
There are three main types of bullying: verbal, physical, and social. Verbal bullying is saying or writing mean things. Physical bullying is hurting someone on purpose by hitting them or kicking them. Social bullying is when someone leaves someone else out on purpose or spreads rumors about them.
Cyberbullying is a form of bullying that takes place online or through text messages. It can include sending mean messages or emails, posting hurtful comments on social media sites, spreading rumors online, etc. Cyberbullying can be just as harmful as offline bullying and can make kids feel upset, scared, alone, and embarrassed.
If you see someone being bullied, it’s important to speak up and tell an adult! You can also stand up to bullying by being kind to others and standing up for yourself if you’re ever the one being bullied.
What are the different types of bullying?
There are four different types of bullying: physical, verbal, emotional, and cyber.
1. Physical bullying is when someone uses their body or objects to hurt others. This can include hitting, kicking, pushing, and taking away someone’s belongings.
2. Verbal bullying is when someone uses words to hurt others. This can include name-calling, making threats, and saying hurtful things about someone behind their back.
3. Emotional bullying is when someone tries to control or manipulate another person’s emotions. This can include rumors, exclusion from social activities, and public humiliation.
4. Cyberbullying is when someone uses technology to harass or threaten others. This can include mean text messages or emails, posting hurtful comments online, and spreading rumors through social media.
