    Bullying is aggressive action or behavior targeted at a specific individual with the intention of hurting them physically, mentally, emotionally, or socially. What distinguishes bullying from other kinds of conflict such as domestic violence, is the real or perceived imbalance of power between the bully and the victim, whether physical or social. In order to be considered as bullying, the behavior must be repeated and habitual.

    Bullying can occur in school, at the workplace, in the family, in the neighborhood, or any place where human interaction takes place. Bullies and their victims usually have or end up with serious psychological problems. Bullying is known to increase the risk of depression and suicide in kids and teens. It also has a negative impact on the social environment and on learning in school.

    Types of Bullying

    1. Physical: This involves physically hurting an individual and/or damaging their possessions. It frequently includes hitting, pinching, kicking, pushing, tripping, spitting on someone, making rude hand gestures as well as taking or destroying someone’s things.
    2. Verbal: This takes the form of saying or writing mean or rude things about the victim, spreading rumors, etc. Verbal bullying often includes teasing, taunting, passing sexual comments, name-calling, and threatening to harm someone.
    3. Social: This is an indirect form of bullying in which the bully seeks to hurt the victim’s relationships with peers and exclude them from their social groups. This can include telling other people not to be friends with them, leaving them out of activities on purpose, and embarrassing them in public.
    4. Cyber: This involves the usage of technology―cell phones, social media, emails―to cause harm to the victim. Cyber bullying can take the form of mean text messages, sending or posting someone’s private pictures, posting negative comments about someone on social media, spreading lies or rumors online, etc.
