Identify Bullying


Most kids have been teased by a sibling or a friend at some point. It’s not usually harmful when done in a playful, friendly, and mutual way, and if both kids find it funny. But when teasing becomes hurtful, unkind, and constant, it crosses the line into bullying and needs to stop.

Bullying is intentional tormenting in physical, verbal, or psychological ways.

It can range from hitting, shoving, name-calling, threats, and mocking to extorting money and possessions. Some kids bully by shunning others and spreading rumors about them. Others use social media or electronic messaging to taunt others or hurt their feelings.

It’s important to take bullying seriously and not just brush it off as something that kids have to “tough out.” The effects can be serious and affect your child’s sense of safety and self-worth. In severe cases, bullying has contributed to tragedies, such as suicides.
