Bullying

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

Bullying often occurs 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.

Examples of Bullying Include:

  • Punching, shoving and other acts that cause physical harm
  • Spreading rumors (including cyber-bullying)
  • Excluding people from a “group”
  • Relentless Teasing
  • Getting certain people to “gang up” on others

As a result, those involved in bullying may experience:

  • Poor academic performance and school failure
  • Mental and psychological health issues (e.g. depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, & behavioral problems)
  • Poor peer relationships
