Bullying behavior is not just a “phase” that children go through: it is a serious problem that can happen anywhere – in schools, online, even at work. Bullying occurs when a person or group of people repeatedly try to harm someone perceived to be “weaker” or “different”.

Bullying behavior can take many forms:

    • Verbal: involving name-calling, teasing
    • Social: by excluding someone, spreading rumors, breaking off friendships
    • Physical: hitting, shoving, punching, etc.
    • Cyberbullying: using various forms of digital technology to hurt others

Take action against bullying behavior:
    • Help the victim develop strategies for handling bullies
    • Document incidents of bullying 
    • Report bullying to school officials or workplace supervisors/human resources staff
    • Seek advice from counselors, health professionals, or Employee Assistance Programs
