Bullying comes in many, many different forms. The most common of these are;

  • Being called names;
  • Being teased, put down or humiliated;
  • Having money and other stuff taken;
  • Being ignored and left out;
  • Being hit, kicked or physically hurt;
  • Being threatened or intimidated;
  • Being bullied through your phone or online (commonly known as cyber bullying)

Bullies will most commonly focus on someone's;

  • Appearance;
  • Race/ethnicity;
  • Religion/culture;
  • Sexuality;
  • Physical disabilities.

Bullying is always wrong, and you need to remember that if you feel like you're being bullied then you are, and it makes no difference if the bully says it's only a joke or that they're playing.

This also applies to people who you wouldn’t think could be bullies.  If your teacher, parent or person with a duty of care fits the criteria written above then they are bullies too and need to stop.

If you are the bully, then approach a teacher whom you like and get along with.  No one wants bullies in their school, home or place of work, so if you explain that you want to change then they will help you and will be glad to do so.
