What is bullying?
Bullying happens in deliberate and repeated behaviour and can come in many forms through verbal and physical attacks, threats, harassment, exclusions, and/or intimidation.
Bullying usually happens to those who are most vulnerable than others and to people who cannot stick up for themselves. Most bullying takes place in and around school and the playground.
Bullying is extremely harmful to its victims in showing that violence and aggression is an “acceptable” alternative in dealing with issues when in truth it is unacceptable. Bullying can put a dark cloud over the victim that can have lasting effects.
