What Is Bullying?

What is bullying?

Bullying can be different things, and isn’t just hitting or kicking another person. Emotional bullying is hurting someone’s feelings, leaving them out or bossing them about. Physical bullying is punching, kicking, spitting, hitting or pushing someone. Verbal bullying is teasing someone, calling them names or using rude hand signs. Cyber bullying involves sending horrid messages over the internet or by text message. Bullying can be done through another person, by one person sending another person to say nasty things.
