What is Bullying?
Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.

Although definitions of bullying vary, most agree that bullying involves:
  • Imbalance of Power: People who bully use their power to control or harm, and the people being bullied may have a hard time defending themselves 
  • Intent to Cause Harm: Actions done (committed) by accident are not bullying; the person bullying has a goal to cause harm 
  • Repetition: Incidents of bullying happen to the same person over and over by the same person or group
