• What Is Bullying?

    Bullying is different from the typical disagreements or conflict that occur between friends or classmates. What’s the difference?

    It’s bullying if:

    • The person is being hurt, harmed or humiliated with words or behavior.
    • The behavior is repeated, though it can be a single incident.
    • It is being done intentionally.
    • The person being hurt has a hard time defending themself from the behavior.
    • The student(s) who are doing it have more power.*

    * ”Power” can include such things as being older, being physically bigger or stronger, having more social status, or when a group of students “gang up” on someone.

    A lot of teens describe bullying as, “When someone tries to make you feel less about who you are as a person, and you aren’t able to make it stop.”
