What is bullying?
Bullying involves an imbalance of power.
Someone who bullies uses their power to control,
hurt or upset someone else on purpose,
a number of times, by using behaviour
which is frightening, upsetting or hurtful.
Bullying can be:
VERBAL: being teased, name calling,
hand signs and rude comments
EMOTIONAL: hurting your feelings,
leaving you out, bossing you about
PHYSICAL: punching, kicking, spitting,
hitting, pushing, touching you
when you don’t like it
RACIST: calling you racist names
CYBER: through texts, e-mail, facebook
and other networking sites
THROUGH A 3RD PERSON: sending a
friend with horrid messages
If you are being bullied:
Use eye contact and tell them to go away
Act as though you don’t care what they say
Save any evidence such as text messages
Find out how to block or report someone who is
Remember it is NOT your fault.
Do what they say
Look upset or cry
Reply to any nasty messages
