What is bullying?
Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior that is repeated over time. The goal
of bullying is to hurt, insult, or threaten another person and involves a real or
perceived imbalance of power. The bully exerts control over others by using
intimidating or harassing actions against others, threatening them, spreading
rumours, attacking them physically or verbally, or excluding them from a group
on purpose. Bullying can occur anywhere – at school, on the bus and even at
home via the internet.
