Bullying happens in many different forms. It's doing, saying or acting in a way that hurts someone else or makes him or her feel bad on purpose. Some kinds of bullying are:
-Phyical (punching, pushing)
-Social (leaving someone out of a game or group on purpose)
-Extortion (stealing someone's money or toys)
-Cyberbullying (using computers, the Internet, mobile phones, etc. to
bully others -See www.cyberbullying.ca for more information)
Being called names can hurt someone else's feelings really badly. All forms of bullying are harmful, but VERBAL bullying, including name-calling, happens more often than any other kind of bullying.
Bullying hurts everyone. Victims can have their feelings hurt or be injured by bullies. Other kids can feel sad or scared, even if they are just watching a bully pick on someone else. Kids who bully often grow up to become adult bullies.
Bullies come in all shapes and sizes and ages. Anyone can be a bully - even you. Kids usually become bullies because they are unhappy inside for some reason or don't know how to get along with other kids.
Fact: Bullying happens to someone in Canada every 7 minutes on the playground.
Fact: Other kids are watching 85% of the time when one kid bullies another kid. Adults like teachers or parents hardly ever see a bully being mean to someone else.
