What is Bullying?
Bullying usually has three common features:
· It is deliberate, hurtful behaviour;
· It is repeated, often over a period of time;
· It is difficult for those being bullied to defend themselves.
There are three main types of bullying:
· Physical; hitting, kicking, taking belongings;
· Verbal: name calling, insulting, making racist remarks;
· Indirect, spreading nasty stories, excluding from groups.
