Bullying is being mean to another kid over and over again. Bullying often includes:

  • Teasing

  • Talking about hurting someone

  • Spreading rumors

  • Leaving kids out on purpose

  • Attacking someone by hitting them or yelling at them


Bullying does not always happen in person. Cyberbullying is a type of bullying that happens online or through text messages or emails. It includes posting rumors on sites like Facebook, sharing embarrassing pictures or videos, and making fake profiles or websites.
